WASHINGTON, D.C. – BioOne (about.BioOne.org) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Ambassador Award. These early career authors in three countries were chosen as BioOne Ambassadors because they best communicate their specialized research beyond their immediate discipline and to the public at large.
Effective communication is fundamental to ensuring the use of scientific information to make informed, evidence-based decisions. BioOne is pleased to recognize these individuals for their clarity and creativity. Winners from each publication will receive a $1,000 award and wide dissemination of their research.
- Dr. Chris Murray – nominated by the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists
- Christoph Leineweber and Anke Cordula Stöhr – nominated by the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians
- Dr. Matt George – nominated by the National Shellfisheries Association
- Fernando Medrano Martínez – nominated by the Netherlands Ornithologists’ Union
- Dr. Auriel M.V. Fournier – nominated by the Waterbirds Society
These winners were chosen through a competitive process. Active BioOne publishers were invited to nominate an early career researcher who published in their journal in 2019. In order to qualify, the author needed to be either a graduate student or a scientist who had completed their PhD within the last five years. BioOne invited qualified nominees to submit a 250-word, plain-language summary explaining how the results of their work apply across disciplines and to the public at large.
BioOne created its Ambassador Award to spotlight rising scholars in their specialties and generate a wider interest in recent research from our publishing partners. BioOne proudly showcases this new generation of researchers. Congratulations to the 2020 award winners.
