Graduate Student Prize

Journal of Evolutionary Biology Graduate Student Prize 2015

ESEB & the JEB editorial team have decided to award an annual prize for the best paper by a graduate student published in the journal in a calendar year. This is aimed at recognising outstanding graduate research, so the paper should primarily arise from a significant piece of work which was included in a Masters or PhD thesis. The prize will be conferred at the nearest ESEB Congress and announced in the journal and online.

The award will include an invitation to attend the Congress (fees and travel included), and a cash prize of €250. We expect the corresponding or senior (first) author to be the graduate student primarily responsible for the research and paper writing, and the supervisor will be asked to confirm this for shortlisted papers. We expect papers to be submitted at the latest within five years of starting a PhD project. When papers are accepted we will ask if the paper is eligible to be considered for the award, and that all the authors agree to this. The prize will be selected by the Deciding Editors of the journal, and we expect the award to be for a paper published in 2015.
