Award for an early-career scientist
Functional Plant Biology is pleased to offer an annual award for the best paper published in the Journal in each calendar year by an early-career scientist.
The award carries a prize of a personal one-year print+online subscription to FPB, a AU$250 book voucher from CSIRO PUBLISHING, a framed reprint and a certificate.
To be eligible for the prize, the first author must be enrolled for a PhD, or be within ten years post-PhD, and a member of the ASPS (or their national equivalent).
Nominations are judged on the basis of reviewers’ reports, and the Executive Committee of the Australian Society of Plant Scientists.
The winner of the award will be announced in an early issue of the journal each year.
