- The Postgraduate Researcher must be the major contributor (first or only author) to the publication.
- Only Postgraduate Researchers who submitted their paper before their final examination are eligible for nomination.
- The publication may have been through a process of peer review, but if not, there will be a clear indication of the impact of the publication, for example on an International Organisation’s or Government’s policy*. Impact factors of journals may be taken into account, but peer assessment of the impact value of a publication may be equally important. A supporting statement by the supervisor will be required to guide the decisions of the judging panels.
- The date of publication (full publication, ‘in press’ or DoI) must be before the Postgraduate Researcher’s final examination.
