The Ulm-Ross Prize for the best paper in Australian Archaeology



The Ulm-Ross Prize

The Ulm-Ross Prize is awarded to the authors of what is considered to be the best paper in the Association’s flagship journal Australian Archaeology. The Prize was first awarded in 2012 to recognise the achievements of the former AA Editors, Annie Ross and Sean Ulm, in raising the standard and profile of the journal. Papers are judged by a panel including the current and former Australian Archaeology Editors, the previous year’s winner(s) of the Prize and selected external experts on the basis of the following criteria:

1. Novelty/originality (opening new avenues for research)
2. Clarity of expression
3. Contribution to substantive debate and/or the ‘big picture’ of the discipline
4. Contribution to research more generally
