Nominating an SRA member for Fellowship of the AcSS


One of the  benefits of SRA membership is that the SRA can nominate  its members to be Fellows of the Academy of Social Sciences. Fellowship is prestigious and a recognition of a person’s standing as a social science researcher. The SRA is keen to ensure that  its members  get the honours that they are due and so engages in the annual nomination process.

The Academy of Social Sciences (AcSS) is the National Academy of Academics, Learned Societies and Practitioners in the social sciences. Its purpose is to promote social science in the UK for public benefit. The SRA, as a learned society member of the AcSS, can nominate members to be considered for Fellowship of the Academy. The advantages of being a Fellow are described on the Academy website, as are the annual subs.

We invite SRA members to propose individuals (who are also members) to us for potential Fellowship.  The SRA nominations committee, made up of members who are themselves Fellows, operates under these terms and conditions pdf file  The person you nominate should have a proven track record of high quality social science research and have made a strong contribution to the advancement of  social research. You will need to write a clear account of this in your proposal.

How it works

Process: There are 2 stages: (1) SRA members propose other members for consideration by the SRA nominations committee;  (2) If accepted, the SRA then puts the nominations to the Academy committee for consideration.

Timing: The SRA makes up to 4 nominations in June each year. To make a proposal to the SRA committee, please use the form below, no later than Friday 26 April 2019.

The form must be fully completed and sent in one go, so please read it first and collect your information in advance.
