The British Academy Medal
The British Academy Medals are awarded annually and recognise outstanding achievement in any branch of the humanities and social sciences, as demonstrated in a landmark academic achievement in any of the disciplines supported by the Academy, which has transformed understanding of a particular subject or field of study. The Medals were first awarded in 2013.
The achievement for which candidates may be nominated is likely to be a publication of particularly outstanding significance for its discipline, in the form of a book, a journal article or other medium appropriate to the discipline concerned. The work can be by a single or multiple authors, but must have been published in one of the three calendar years preceding the nomination deadline. Candidates may be of any age, nationality or country of residence, provided that the nominated work is available in English. Nominations can be put forward by any Fellow or Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy.
Nominations may only be made by Fellows of the British Academy.
