German History Article Prize

Each year, German History’s editorial board awards a prize for the best article published in the journal.

The prize is intended to showcase outstanding work from scholars of German history, whatever their career stage, and the winner will be invited to receive their award at the annual meeting of the German History Society in September.

The prize is worth £500, with an additional £250 of books provided by OUP. Oxford Journals makes the prize-winning articles freely available online.
