Sandra E. Shumway Award

The NSA Executive Committee approved a proposal to recognize outstanding student written contributions to the Journal of Shellfish Research at the 102nd Annual Meeting (2010) in San Diego, CA.  Upon completion of each volume of JSR, beginning with volume 28 published in 2009, a subgroup of the JSR Editorial Board reviews all papers with students listed as lead authors to determine the best student paper published in that year.  This award includes a $1,250 prize.

Selection and Evaluation Criteria:

  • Lead author must have been a student when the work was completed
  • The paper must present the student's work, not that of a co-author
  • Quality of science
  • Quality of writing
  • Importance of the work to the field of shellfish research
