ACER Journal Award for Early Career Investigator Outstanding Paper

Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research (ACER), the journal of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) and the International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ISBRA), is pleased to announce awards for outstanding papers published in ACER by early career investigators. These awards recognize outstanding scientific papers published in ACER, between January 1 and December 31 the year prior to award, by students or postdoctoral fellows at the time of paper acceptance and within four years of their terminal degree at the time of submission. In addition to being recognized in ACER and at the annual RSA meeting, awardees will receive a registration waiver for the RSA meeting (year awarded) and a $500 award.

For consideration, a nomination letter is required (typically from the senior author) and must describe (1) the role of the early career investigator in the project and write-up of the manuscript, (2) the potential impact of the research report on the field, and (3) why this individual warrants this recognition.

Nomination deadline is January 31 each year.
