Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize - 2018 Round Open
Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize aims to encourage the writing, publishing and reading of good and accessible popular science books for adults and young people.
Prizes are awarded to the authors of popular non-fiction science and technology books that are judged to contribute most towards making science more accessible to public audiences.
Submissions may be concerned with any aspect of popular science or technology, including biographies of scientists and technologists and histories of science and technology, which appeals to a general adult readership.
For 2018, prizes of up to a total of £37,500 will be awarded. The author of the winning book with a general readership will receive £25,000. Up to five shortlisted authors will receive £2,500 each.
Applications are accepted from publishers only. Applicants must have written a science or technology book which appeals to a non-specialist readership.
The first publication in English must have been between 1 October 2017 and 30 September 2018 inclusive for all books entered.
The closing date for receipt of applications for the 2018 Prize is 30 March 2018.
