  2. shows rigor and coherence in research and writing,
  3. offer accessibility and practical relevance,
  4. address some aspect of one or more environmental, pollution or resource issues from a broadly international or transnational perspective, including works in (for example) global, interstate, transboundary, North-South, foreign policy, comparative or area studies and finally,
  5. discuss topics such as for example
    • environmental law,
    • diplomacy,
    • transnational activism,
    • natural resource use,
    • global change,
    • sustainable development,
    • biodiversity,
    • transboundary pollution control, or
    • other topics.

Nominated works must be published during the two years prior to the year they are nominated for – so in 2015 or 2016. Books with a copyright date of the award year (2017) are welcome provided that they are released by the previous year’s end (2016). Each publisher may nominate more than one book, and books nominated for the prior year can be re-nominated.
