About the prize

To mark the tenth anniversary of Families, Relationships and Societies (FRS) in 2021, the journal launched an annual prize to recognize the outstanding contributions made to FRS.

The prize was created in memory of David Morgan, former president of the British Sociological Association (BSA), and past member of the FRS editorial team.

A panel involving Editorial Board members judges research articles published in a journal issue during 2022 on the following criteria:

  • Originality: a novel contribution to the field of families and relationships
  • Significance: the work is likely to exert influence within its field of study
  • Demonstrates rigorous social science methods and theory: uses compelling evidence to argue its case

£100-worth of Policy Press/Bristol University Press books will be awarded to the winner and their paper will be promoted widely.
