Early Science and Medicine and the Early Sciences Forum of the History of Science Society are joining together to run a prize competition for the best essay focusing on early science, medicine, technology, and other forms of natural knowledge across the globe before 1800. We especially welcome submissions from early career scholars. The author of the winning essay will receive a $200 award and the piece will be published as an article in Early Science and Medicine 29 (2024) subject to peer review; the committee will provide mentorship throughout the process. The winner will be strongly encouraged to attend the 2023 History of Science Society Conference meeting on November 9-12 in Portland, Oregon as the prize will be awarded at the Early Sciences Forum Meeting. 

We invite you to submit unpublished essays between 8,000 and 15,000 words in English that are not under consideration at another journal. Please follow the ESM style guide and make sure that your paper has been anonymized. ESM publishes images in color and black-and-white; the author will handle permissions.
