Congratulations to Special Education assistant professor Amber Ray, who has been named the 2022 recipient of the Early Career Publication Award from the Council for Exceptional Children Division for Research.
This prestigious award will be formally presented to Ray, who joined the College of Education faculty in 2020, at the 2023 CEC Convention in March. The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) is the largest international professional organization dedicated to improving the success of children and youth with disabilities and/or gifts and talents.
The Early Career Publication Award recognizes an outstanding research publication by an individual within five years after completing the doctorate. The person nominated must be sole or first author of the article. The article must be a completed study published in a peer-refereed journal prior to the deadline. Online First (or similar) publications are eligible (e.g., article is accepted, final proofs are completed, revisions are not possible, and the article is posted in final form). Pre-prints and “in-press” papers will not be considered. The article must be a primary research report, a meta-analysis, or a research review. It may not be a chapter, theoretical paper, or position or issue article. Nominations are sought across all areas of Special Education as well as all forms of research methodology.
