Starting this year, IC-IMPACTS HQP Research Paper Awards will be presented annually to IC-IMPACTS HQP (graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, or Research Associates) who have published their work in a peer-reviewed journal with a high impact factor.
For the 2021 Awards, the paper should have been published in a high impact factor journal between January 1, 2019 and April 30, 2021. The HQP submitting the application should be the first author. The competition serves to showcase the high quality of work by the HQP (and their collaborators) and the excellence of the research.
THREE Prizes will be awarded this year. IC-IMPACTS HQP Research Paper Awards Committee will evaluate the submissions and select the top candidates. Each award will include an IC-IMPACTS Citation and a prize of $1,000 CAD (to be shared amongst HQP co-authors if applicable).
Tuesday, June 15, 2021 (midnight PDT)
Each applicant should submit the following three documents:
The cover letter should be a maximum of 500 words, font size 11, and no longer than one page.
Papers will be evaluated in relation to their overall quality and potential significance to the field based on the information requested in the cover letter from the HQP.
Winners will be announced in August 2021 and will be invited to join us for an IC-IMPACTS awards ceremony.
