The Editorial Board of Australian Systematic Botany is pleased to offer an annual Student Prize for the best student-authored paper published in the Journal.
The Prize is a one-year personal print/online subscription to the journal, and a AU$250 book voucher from CSIRO Publishing.
To be eligible for the Prize, the student must be the lead author of the paper, and the paper must be submitted for publication while the student is enrolled for a higher degree, or within two years of graduating for a higher degree. Appropriate certification is required from the student´s supervisor.
Papers eligible for the Prize will be judged by the Editorial Board.
The winner of the annual Prize will be announced each year in an issue of the Journal.
