Best Article Award Nomination 2022

The ISDRS Best Article Award, Jury of 2022:

The ISDRS Board appoints an Award Jury consisting of at least 8 members, of which at least 4 are ISDRS Board Members, and the others are full ISDRS members. In case of high numbers of articles nominated, other ISDRS Board members can be asked to assist the Jury, and be part of the Jury too.

Members of the Awards Jury as well as Board Members are invited to make suggestions themselves, but are explicitly excluded from suggesting their own publications or nominating themselves.

Call: The Executive Board initiates and oversees the process. The assistant prepares the communication and the handling of the suggested articles. The Award Jury will be responsible for the assessment and the selection.Selection criteria: The criteria should be published with the call. They are approved by the Executive Committee.Selection process: The same criteria should guide the selection process for the short list (multiple nominations may indicate a good article, but this is not the voting stage yet). Regional and gender balance are no selection criteria, but the call should encourage submissions by such authors. If the numbers are far higher than 80, the selecting of the short list may easily become a task too heavy for the Award Jury to shoulder; in that case the whole of the Board should be parachuted in to save the day. 

Possible complements

Using the journal(s) to announce the winner and for publishing her/his bio could be an attractive way of drawing the attention of the journal’s community to ISDRS and vice versa.
