SCBO Student Paper Award for 2020 Now Open

SCBO are pleased to announce the call for our annual student paper award. The closing date for nominations is 1st May 2020. Prizes include free registration to the Oceania Congress for Conservation Biology in 2021 or SCB membership!

Due to the cancellation of SCB conferences this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be awarding a student presentation award in 2020.

Best SCBO Student paper award

To be considered for the student paper award, e-mail a pdf of your paper and proof of your student status (e.g. a photo / scan of your student ID) to by 1st May 2020. To be eligible, papers must be first-authored by a student member of SCB Oceania, with a publication date between April 2019 and April 2020. Each member may only submit one publication to be considered for the award, so choose your best! Papers will be judged by the Board on their scientific merit, clarity, innovativeness, and relevance to conservation and management. Winner(s) will be announced at the SCBO AGM in September, and online.

SCB Oceania is committed to celebrating and supporting diversity. To do this, we need award nominations of outstanding scientists from all locations within Oceania, all backgrounds, and all genders. 

Best of luck!
