Best Paper Competition

The best paper award recognizes novel ways of performing integrative science and policy research. A prize of 500 Euro and a place on the main index page of the journal will be awarded to the author(s) of the most novel paper that integrates different streams of science to assess fundamental questions in the ecological, political, and social foundations for sustainable social-ecological systems.

All peer-reviewed papers published during a year in Ecology and Society will be considered for the award. The (associate) editors-in-chief of Ecology and Society compile a short list of about 10 papers after which the board of editors is invited to vote for their top 3.

We are grateful to the Foundation of Scientific Symbiosis,, for providing the resources to finance this competition.
