How to nominate a paper

Authors of papers (e.g., fellows and other IAS-affiliated researchers) are invited to nominate their own work or the work of others. In case you nominate a paper of a colleague in your field, please make sure to involve the author in the process. You can nominate only one paper per edition of the journal. To nominate a paper please submit:

  • the paper (or a link to the paper);
  • your (short) motivation why the paper is relevant for IAS Review;
  • An extended abstract:
    • written at a level that is understandable to researchers in other fields;
    • explaining the significance of the paper in its field(s);
    • explaining the relevance of the paper in the context of IAS Review;
    • inspiring other disciplines, e.g., providing potential connections with other fields;
    • adding -if needed- further reading suggestions;
    • max 500 words.  
  • Three to five keywords;
  • A picture that matches with the content (if available).

Content criteria

We look forward to receiving nominations for papers:

  • On interdisciplinary topics;
