Abstract:To mark the agreement between the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) and Blackwell Publishing, Area now awards an annual prize (worth £500) for the best single-authored article published in the journal by a ‘new researcher’. The eligibility criteria can be found on the Area website ( http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/journals/area/). In 2002, five papers were considered for the Area Prize. All the papers were read by the editors of Area, The Geographical Journal and Transactions, and by the Chair of the Research Committee. The adjudication resulted in a clear shortlist of two and a narrow winner. The results are presented below.
