Papers of the Year

The Journal for the Education of the Gifted (JEG) has published high-quality manuscripts for four decades. It is produced in a partnership between The Association for the Gifted (TAG) of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and SAGE Publications. In 2014, the TAG Board of Directors voted to award a JEG Paper of the Year.

The JEG Paper of the Year was selected from the previous year’s published manuscripts (within the same volume). TAG Board members provided nominations for consideration for the JEG Paper of the Year. After receiving the nominations, the JEG Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor selected the top five nominations. The editors invited four reviewers from the overall JEG reviewer base to read each manuscript and evaluate it using a list of criteria created for the task. The JEG Paper of the Year was selected based on three criteria: relevance and contribution to the literature, timeliness and innovation, and research methodology.

The authors received plaques and a check for $500. The plaques and the monetary award are sponsored by the Center for Gifted Education at William & Mary.
