UKLA Wiley-Blackwell Research in Literacy Education Award

UKLA is pleased to announce the shortlists of the 2014 UKLA / Wiley-Blackwell Research in Literacy Education Awards.

The UKLA/ Wiley-Blackwell Research in Literacy Education Award is a prestigious prize bestowed on the best article in the Journal of Research in Reading (JRR) and Literacy in the previous year. Both are peer-reviewed journals with international reputations for excellence. Editors of both journals, in liaison with members of their boards, submit papers to a panel, who read all of the papers and decide on the winners. The panel this year is chaired by Jackie Marsh and panel members for 2014 are: Clare Dowdall, Lynda Graham, Colin Harrison, Clare Kelly, Becky Parry, Carole Torgerson and Wayne Tennant.  The winners will be announced at the end of March 2014, and the award will be presented to the winners at the 50th UKLA International Conference at the University of Sussex on Saturday 5th July 2014.
