CIRES Env. Chem. Division Best Student Paper Award
Rules for the Competition
- (1) The paper must have been published in final form and/or have an official acceptance date during the past calendar year. Non-peer reviewed papers are not eligible, including “discussions” papers. A given paper can only be submitted for the Award once, even if it is eligible in two consecutive years.
- (2) The first author of the paper must be (have been) a PhD or Masters student in one of the groups under CIRES Environmental Chemistry when the paper was submitted. This includes CIRES/ANYL students working for faculty in other divisions, departments or in national labs. It also includes students who have graduated, as long as the paper was part of their graduate research and was published during the past calendar year. A given student can only win this competition once.
- (3) The first author of the paper should submit the following materials to the ANYL Graduate Advisor via email:
- PDF of the paper in final form
- A paragraph (limited to 250 words) stating the significance and impact of the work and their role in the work described in the paper
- (4) The criteria for the Award will include the novelty and importance of the results, the quality of the presentation, and the quality of the journal.
- (5) The CIRES EnvChem faculty will vote to choose one paper. Details below.
- (6) The Award will be presented at ANYL seminar, and will consist of $500 and a Certificate
CHEM ANYL Division Best Postdoc & Research Scientist Paper Award
Rules for the Competition
- All rules are the same as for the graduate student award, with the following exceptions:
- (2) The first author of the paper must be (have been) a postdoctoral researcher or research scientist in the CHEM ANYL Division when the paper was submitted. This includes people who have moved on from CU, as long as the paper was part of their research at CU, and was published during the past calendar year. A given person can only win this competition once.
- (5) The CHEM ANYL faculty will vote to choose one paper. Details below.
Detailed Rules for Faculty Voting (for both competitions)
- (1) Each faculty votes per the rules. As is standard to avoid conflicts-of-interest, faculty cannot vote on papers where they are coauthors. If an advisor does not vote, the papers from his/her advisees will not be eligible for the Award.
- (2) The final score is calculated by summing the individual faculty scores for a paper, and then dividing by the number of faculty that voted on that paper. E.g. if a paper is ranked 1st by one faculty member and 2nd by another (and only those 2 faculty voted), it has 3 total points, and a final score of 3 / 2 = 1.5.
- (3) The paper with the lowest final score wins.
- (4) If one or more papers are within 10.0% of the score of the winning paper (calculated as (2nd - winner) / winner), then those papers also win. Otherwise there is only one winner.
