Five of our FEMS Journals have announced the winners of their Article Awards for 2020.
The Editors-in-Chief and Editorial Boards of each journal selected the best article from the scientific papers published with them in 2020 and each journal decided to award €1,000 which is split equally between all the authors of the winning paper. The prize money is funded by the income we receive from our journals (which also fund our charitable activities, events, grants, and other awards).
All authors who published with us in these journals in 2020 were automatically considered for an award upon submission of their papers.
The award also includes special attention, from FEMS and our not-for-profit publisher Oxford University Press, devoted to the winning articles to promote the authors’ research. We have contacted all winners of an Article Award and will be releasing a series of in-depth interviews with each winning author/author group about their research and background, so stay tuned for that!
