The BSHM is pleased to announce the launch of the Biennial Taylor and Francis Early Career Research Prize.

The prize, of £1000, is for an essay of up to 8000 words on any aspect of the history of mathematics.

The winning essay will be considered for publication in the Society’s journal, The British Journal for the History of Mathematics. The winner will be appointed social media coordinator for the Society for two years; be given access to the Society’s Twitter and Facebook accounts; and be invited to blog on the history of mathematics.

Articles published by early career researchers in the Society’s journal during the years 2020–2021 will automatically be considered for the award.


In the context of the prize an early career researcher is defined to be either (a) a current doctoral student or (b) a person within five years (on 31 December 2021) of having graduated with a doctorate.

Essays which have already been published, or have been submitted for publication, in other journals may not be entered for the prize.
