Submissions for Best Student Paper now open

We are currently accepting applications for the NZFSS Best Student Paper Award. The Award is given for the best student paper published in the freshwater sciences in the year preceding the NZFSS conference by a New Zealand student or a student studying or working in New Zealand.

This award complements the best oral and poster presentation awards given out annually at the NZFSS conference and highlights the importance of communicating science by publishing in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Students wishing to be considered for this award must meet the following criteria:

  • The student must be the first author of the publication. If the paper is co-authored, written confirmation from the student’s supervisor that the paper is the student’s own work may be required.
  • The student must be a current member of the New Zealand Freshwater Sciences Society.
  • The student must be currently registered as a student or have graduated within the last two years. The paper must be on research completed while they were a student as part of their postgraduate qualification (generally, BSc(Hons), MSc or PhD).

Applications are due by 30 September 2019.
