Philip Brown Prize for the Best Published Paper in 2012
Dear Sirca Members,
Sirca has decided to make an annual award for the best paper published in the previous calendar year that uses, at least in part, data supplied by Sirca. The award will be made based on a recommendation to the Sirca CEO by the Membership and Research Committee (MRC), a sub-committee of the Sirca Limited Board. It has an initial cash value of $10,000.
In recognition of the contribution Philip Brown made to the establishment of Sirca and the work he did in developing databases to be used for finance and accounting research, the award has been named in his honour. The 2012 best paper will be announced during the 2013 AFAANZ Conference in Perth (July 7-9), and Philip has agreed to make the inaugural presentation.
I write to invite you to submit papers that were published in the 2012 calendar year, that use (at least in part) data supplied by Sirca, and that you believe are of excellent quality. While not all excellent papers are published in the “best” journals (as a guide ABDC rank A and above) it is unlikely that papers published in journals below an A rank would qualify for the award. Please submit a full pdf version of the paper that provides details of the journal in which your paper is published.
Please respond prior to 15 June 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org

The free, web-based EndNote Basic offers a new collaborative edge whilst remaining a true reference management tool
“…a slightly enhanced level of Endnote Basic account which is available to subscribers to Web of Knowledge. When Endnote Basic recognises a user as having access to Web of Knowledge, it automatically upgrades the account. This enables the user to access the institution’s chosen styles, connectors and import filters. It is at this point that the community aspect of the Thomson Reuters’ product suite begins to come into play with the links between Researcher ID and Web of Knowledge”.
Enrolments are closing soon for the QSR Hosted NVivo workshop to be held in Brisbane on 15 – 16 May 2013. If you haven’t already done so and are interested, I would encourage you to submit your enrolment form as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
