The Australasian Sleep Association is awarding a prize to the best paper in the field of sleep research from Q4 2016. This unique prize aims to showcase and drive wider knowledge exchange for current sleep research, our members and the wider community. We will be hosting a suite of these prizes during the year and we invite all ASA sleep researchers to apply. Everyone will benefit with greater exposure, while the winner (as voted openly by verified researchers around the world) will receive $500.
To apply you must be a member of the ASA, and have published a paper in the field of sleep research between October 1st - December 31st 2016 (either in print or Epub/pre-print ahead of print). Each paper is only eligible once (i.e. If the Epub/pre-print ahead of print date is selected then the same paper is not also eligible for consideration in a subsequent round).
How to Apply?
Simply share a summary about your research paper/implications and add a PubMed link and/or DOI or repository link so anyone can access your paper to learn more. You have the option to upload a summary video about the research, which has been shown to engage a wider audience with your work. If you would like to create a video, check out our guide for hints or watch the hundreds of other research videos in other Thinkable competitions.
How will the prize be judged?
Once submissions close, the voting stage will open and any Thinkable user that is registered as a verified researcher will be able to vote for their favourite submission. To become a verified researcher with Thinkable, you are required to provide your current organisation email for proof of identity, a link to a relevant, peer-reviewed publication from the last five years that you have authored or co-authored, and at least one field of expertise.
