Submission Instructions

Submissions may be either empirically or conceptually based. Multi-disciplinary approaches to research are welcomed. The paper should focus on some aspect of leadership or leadership development.

Submissions will be judged by the following criteria:

  1. The degree to which the paper addresses issues and trends that are significant to the study of leadership;
  2. The extent to which the paper shows consideration of the relevant theoretical and empirical literature;
  3. The extent to which the paper makes a conceptual or empirical contribution;
  4. The implications of the research for application to leadership identification and development.

Papers must be authored and submitted by graduate or undergraduate students only. All authors must currently be students or must have graduated within 1-year prior to the submission deadline of Friday June 15, 2012. CCL staff and papers submitted to other CCL awards are ineligible. All entrants must:

  1. Provide a letter on organizational letterhead from one faculty member certifying that a student wrote the paper;
  2. Submit two PDFs electronically;
    • the first PDF should only include the manuscript with the title of the paper on the first page.
    • the second PDF (1-page only) should include the title of the paper, author’s full name, mailing and email addresses, and phone number.

Papers will be reviewed anonymously by a panel of researchers associated with CCL. Papers are limited to 30 double-spaced pages, excluding title page, abstract, figures, tables, and references. Papers above this limit that are not completely doubled spaced may not be eligible for the Award and may be returned to authors unreviewed. Papers should be prepared according to current edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

In the absence of papers deemed deserving of the award, the award may be withheld. Entries (accompanied by faculty letters) must be received by June 15, 2012. The winning paper will be announced at the 2012 ILA Conference. Entries should be emailed to ClarkAward@ccl.org.
