The ISDRS Best Article Award is becoming a pivotal element of rewarding the excellent research work in the field of sustainability and progressing ground-breaking knowledge to public. In 2024 ISDRS will hand out the Best Article Award for the best sustainable development publication of the previous year for the fifth time. The great success of the previous years and the goal to support the visibility of inspiring sustainability researchers encourage the ISDRS board to continue the selection of a Best Article Award this year again.
Are you interested to be part of Jury for the best article award 2023?
We look for volunteers and active members for the Award Jury. The ISDRS jury selects the shortlist of papers for voting from those nominated. The Award Jury reviews the suggested articles based on given criteria and nominates a shortlist of 5 papers: each Jury member reviews a batch of the suggested articles, assessing these on a 1-10 points scale. Each article is assessed by 3 Jury members.
So, we are looking for helpful hands to sever as award jury! Please consider becoming a member of the jury and kindly send your interest to Waqas Mazhar via email (email@example.com).
