About the reward
Award: complimentary 1-year QRA membership
The Journal of Quaternary Science presents an annual award to recognise the outstanding work of an Early Career Researcher (ECR). To be eligible for this award, a paper must be first-authored by an ECR who completed their PhD no more than 7 years ago, taking into account any career interruptions.
The shortlisting process for eligible papers is carried out by the Journal’s four editors. The final selection of the winning paper is made by a sub-committee of the QRA Executive Committee.
The winning paper will be made freely available to read for a period of 12 months, or it will remain accessible if it is already open access. In addition, the author will receive a complimentary QRA membership for the year.
