The O.P. Alford III Prize in Libertarian Scholarship

April 30, 2009 by

As most readers of this blog know, the Mises Institute launched Libertarian Papers last January (I am its humble Editor). In just three months LP has published 25 great papers, and been indexed in a number of leading services. It has quickly become a key journal of libertarian scholarship.

Since 2002, the O.P. Alford III Prize in Libertarian Scholarship, a bi-annual $1000 prize, has been awarded to the paper published in the preceding two-year period that best advances libertarian scholarship. The award was named for a great entrepreneur, O.P. Alford III, whose friendship to the Mises Institute and dedication to the cause of liberty will not be forgotten.

I am pleased to announce that the Mises Institute has generously decided to grant the $1000 Alford prize annually–instead of every other year–to the article published in Libertarian Papers that best advances libertarian scholarship. The next such prize will be awarded at the Austrian Scholars Conference 2010 to the best article from Libertarian Papers published in 2009, as chosen by the journal’s Editor and Editoral Board.

I read the first page of the new Narveson essay. At the bottom of the first paragraph, there is a punctuation error involving quotation marks.

I’d like to see LP taken seriously by the intellectual community, along with any and all libertarian journals. One would think the editors should have picked up on this error, as it’s rather hard to miss.
