Entries for the Basil Stuart-Stubbs Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Book on British Columbia can be written or edited by any Canadian (s) but the subject matter must pertain to British Columbia.

The author need not be formally affiliated with a university or college, etc.  An educational mandate or perspective can be sufficient to merit the term scholarly if the quality of the writing and research is sufficiently high.

Books can be deemed eligible only once, on a calendar-year basis. The award is judged by a panel selected by Pacific BookWorld News Society. A shortlist of three titles is selected prior to a presentation ceremony hosted by UBC Library.

There is no entry fee. Publishers simply submit three copies of each eligible title by December 1.
