Canadian scholarly journals are invited to submit an application for the 2018 inaugural Scholarly and Research Communication* Innovation Award.
The intent of the SRC-Innovation Award is to recognize and publicize new Canadian scholarly journal communication initiatives that are designed to increase the influence of a journal among readers and are noted by peers as significant. More generally, the Award is intended to underline the creative and innovative contributions that scholarly journals make to effective and inspired scholarly communication.
Journals are encouraged to describe the nature of the innovation, its intended impact, and its actual results. There is no formal application form. Please see attached poster for details.
The SRC-Innovation Award will be bestowed for the first time at the annual meeting of the Canadian Association of Learned Journals in late May, 2018. The award will be recognized in the form of a certificate and the freedom to cite the award. Should entrance fees generate greater revenue than administrative costs, a monetary award will be forthcoming.
The call for submissions is open until April 30, 2018. For further details on this new award, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
