Young Scientist Award

Animal Production Science is pleased to offer a Young Scientist Award for the best oral or poster paper presented at the biennial conferences of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics and Australian Society of Animal Production.

The award carries a prize of a personal one-year print subscription to Animal Production Science, a AU$250 book voucher from CSIRO Publishing, and a certificate.

To be eligible for the prize, the first author must be no more than 10 years post-PhD (i.e. <35 years old), and a member of the relevant society.

Authors are asked to nominate whether a paper is suitable for consideration for the award, and nominations are then judged by the Executive Committee of the Society, and an Editor, to select a winner.

The winner of the award(s) will be announced at the conclusion of the conference and in an Editorial published in the journal.
