The set-up for the 12th edition of the Cover Prize is slightly different to previous years. The decision on which was the best cover this year will depend not just on the votes from the public but also on a jury. Both assessments get equal weight. In the unlikely event of a tie, the jury will decide.
The Resource editors have chosen a shortlist of ten covers from the large pile of PhD theses that appeared this year (about 300). We looked at creativity, the lettering, the usage of colour and of course how the cover reflects the content. The shortlist comprises five theses by men and five by women.
