Authors and editors from SAGE journal Feminism & Psychology have won Distinguished Publication Awards! Here at SAGE, we are always excited to see the work of our esteemed authors and editors being recognised for their high quality. In March of this year, an article from Feminism & Psychology and a book written by the two of the journals consulting editors of the journal, received coveted Distinguished Publication Awards at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association from The Association for Women in Psychology.
The awards are given to books and articles that make a significant contribution to the psychology of women research and theory. Feminism & Psychology is one of the leading international forums for cutting-edge feminist research and debate in psychology, and these awards go in part to celebrate and recognize the great work that the journal does is developing the field of feminist theory and practice in psychology.
Lisa Cosgrove and Emily Wheeler, won the Distinguished Publication Award for their article: “Industry’s colonization of psychiatry: Ethical and practical implications of financial conflicts of interest in the DSM-5”, exploring the potential for bias in the revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
Virginia Braun and Victoria Clarke, Consulting Editors of Feminism & Psychology, won the award for their book Successful Qualitative Research (SAGE, 2013) and they stated that:
“When we wrote this book, we wanted it to not only demystify the process of qualitative research and provide a useful learning tool, but also to really engage readers. We never dreamed we’d win a publication award for it – but we’re delighted that we have, not least because it suggests we’ve achieved that aim!”
We are delighted to see our authors recognised in this way and send our belated congratulations to Lisa, Emily and Virginia, Victoria!
