The Communicating Science, Health, Environment, and Risk Division invites paper submissions that represent original research related to science, health, environment, risk, technology, and other topics relevant to the communication of scientific information to the general public or specific populations.
ComSHER welcomes papers that follow any disciplinary approaches and all methodological orientations, both quantitative and qualitative.
To acknowledge research excellence, ComSHER offers the $1,000 Eason Prize for the top student paper, which the largest paper award is given to graduate students at AEJMC. Students competing for top student paper and the accompanying $1,000 Eason Prize will be judged together with other ComSHER faculty submissions. The Eason Prize is awarded in memory of former University of Texas doctoral candidate Lori Eason (1957-2002). Papers competing for the Eason Prize cannot be co-authored with faculty, and authors must identify their submission as an Eason Prize entry on the cover page.
Paper submission should follow AEJMC Uniform Paper Call Guidelines (no more than 25 pages of double-spaced text, plus references, tables, figures, and appendices). Before uploading your paper, remove all author identification from the document including any file properties. Direct questions to Research Chair Amanda Hinnant email@example.com or 573.882.7980).
