Student paper competition

The organizing committee wishes to promote the work of postgraduate students (MA/PhD) in the field of terrorism research.

All paper presentations submitted by graduate students will therefore be eligible for the honour of Best Student Paper. The winner will have the written paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Behavioral Sciences of Terrorism and Political Aggression. The award decision will be made by a committee comprising STR Governing Board members, editors of the journal, and selected specialists.

The author(s) must initially submit an abstract on the general submission date of 30 January 2019. At the time of abstract submission they must indicate that they wish for their paper to be considered for the Student Paper Contest. It is only after their abstract is accepted that competition entrants should send a full paper to the conference organisers.

Student Papers can be submitted to by 20 May 2019. This paper must comply with the author guidelines for the journal.


The primary author’s presentation of the paper at the Conference in Oslo 20-21 June 2019 is required. The primary author should be a current graduate student studying through a university or successfully completed her/his graduate studies since 1 January 2019. This competition is not open to current undergraduate students
