Sage Journal honoured with 'Charles et Monique Moraze Award'

Science, Technology and Society11 October 2013: Sage India flagship journal Science, Technology and Society has been honoured with 'Charles et Monique Moraze Award' by the French Social Sciences Foundation (Fondation maison des sciences de l'homme). The award is granted in recognition of the innovative work conducted by the publication since its inception, in one of the two fields of research dear to Charles Moraze: science and society, and education and society.

The first laureate of the prize is being awarded to the journal Science, Technology and Society. Launched in New Delhi in 1996 with the support of FMSH by an Indo- French team led by Professor V.V. Krishna, from Jawaharlal Nehru University and Dr Roland Waast, from the French Institute for Research on Development, as the first truly international journal in its field devoted to the developing world and published-by Sage India- from the region.

Speaking at the occasion, the editor of the journal Prof V V Krishna said “The award is being given to our journal for the professionalization of the field of science and society studies in the last two decades. Without the help, commitment and dedication of colleagues at Sage, particularly editors and other colleagues connected with the publication of the journal, this recognition would not have been possible at all. I would like to express my sense of gratitude to each one of our colleagues there connected with this journal. Above all, the journal witnessed remarkable academic progress over the years which led to its ranking in the SSCI of Thomson Reuters”. Professor Krishna is presently the chairman of the Centre for Science Policy, Jawaharlal Nehru University.

The Award ceremony was held in Paris in Fall 2013, in a year celebrating the Fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the Fondation maison des sciences de l’homme (French Social Sciences Foundation).

Reacting to the news, Mr Vivek Mehra, MD &CEO, Sage India said “Sage India has always believed in encouraging Innovative ideas. This award is a testament to our continuing commitment to quality publishing. We are proud to be associated with the journal and would like to congratulate every member associated with the journal for this well-deserved award”.

The award to the journal also provides Prof Krishna with the opportunity to be Visiting Professor Chair for 2 months in Paris. During this tenure he would be working on a collaborative project with colleagues and prepare a lecture on 'Changing Social Relations between Science and Society - Contemporary Challenges'.
