About the Award
In 2004, to mark the 80th birthday of John Beynon, the founding Editor of Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry (RCM), the publishers (John Wiley and Sons, Ltd.) established an annual award named the 'RCM Beynon Prize'. This award, consisting of a monetary award of $1000 (US) plus a certificate for each contributing author, is awarded by an ad hoc Sub-committee of the Editorial Board of RCM, based on the following criterion.
The prize will be awarded annually to the corresponding author(s) of the paper, published in RCM over the previous two calendar years that, in the opinion of the Awards Sub-committee, describes an innovative advance in mass spectrometric instrumentation or methodology that has had the greatest immediate impact in its particular sub-discipline over the previous two calendar years (i.e., published in the previous two volumes of RCM).
