In giving these awards, ARSC recognizes the contributions of these individuals and aims to encourage others to emulate their high standards and to promote readership of their work. Awards are presented annually in each category for best history and best discography, and others may be acknowledged with Certificates of Merit. Awards are presented to both the authors and publishers of winning publications. 

Turner will be recognized during an awards ceremony to be held during ARSC's annual conference on May 20, 2023. More information can be found on their website ARSC Awards.
