Annual award for a publication in Biomaterials Research

Biomaterials Research, the official journal of the Korean Society for Biomaterials (KSBM), is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles on all aspects of biomaterials research.

BioMed Central, publisher of Biomaterials Research, is establishing an annual award to highlight the best article published in the journal, including research articles and review articles. The prize will be awarded to the article that is deemed most worthy in terms of novelty, general interest and significance, by the journal’s Editor-in-Chief Prof Insup Noh, and Society Editorial Board.

The prize will be a waiver of the article processing charge (APC) for a future publication in the journal, and a £100 Amazon voucher. The first prize will be awarded in February 2016, to an article published between 1st January 2015 and 31st December 2015. For future prizes, authors must state in their cover letter that they would like to be considered for the award; research articles or review articles from all members of the KSBM and non-society members are welcome.

The journal is supported by an eminent, international Editorial Board, and the full aims and scope can be found here.
