GSA Outstanding Paper Award

Date: 01/25/2018

On Behalf of Nathan Niemi, University of Michigan:

Dear Colleagues,

Help us continue to recognize the groundbreaking science done within our community by submitting a nomination for the 2018 Geological Society of America Structural Geology and Tectonics Division Outstanding Publication Award. This award is given annually for a published work (paper, book, or map) of exceptional distinction that clearly advances the science of structural geology or tectonics. The Outstanding Publication Award is not limited to members of the Division or the Society, and awardees may be single or multiple authors, with no restrictions as to nationality, citizenship, publisher or publishing agency. The award may not be given posthumously unless the decision to give the award is made before the death of the awardee(s).
The nomination process is simple, quick, and enjoyable.

Nominations include:
(1) A full citation.
(2) Nomination (as short as a paragraph; letters or reviews may also be included).
Some questions to consider when writing your nomination:
• Why is the publication exceptional?
• How has the contribution changed your work?
• What are specific advances made by the publication?
• How might the work have influenced the work of others?
(3) Name and address of nominator.

The deadline for new nominations is March 1st. Previous nominations will be considered again this year.

Mail or e-mail nominations (or questions) to:

Seth Kruckenberg, Chair - Outstanding Publication Award Committee
Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences
Boston College
140 Commonwealth Avenue, Devlin Hall 213
Chestnut Hill, MA 02467 USA

Want to send an announcement to the SCEC community?
SCEC community announcement requests should be sent to scecinfo@usc.edu (no attachments) with the following requirements, in order to best standardize announcements and provide maximum security for recipients. These requirements also ensure that various email applications and any applied filters reach the recipient as the announcement was intended.
1) Use this style guide :
• All text must be in Helvetica, 12 pt.
• Bold, italics, and underline formatting is permitted.
• Consider the length of web links; use bit.ly or tinyurl.com to shorten them as needed.
• NO PDFs, Word Docs, images, or other attachments - all content must be in the email request itself.
2) Include a subject line.

3) Remember, send your request to scecinfo@usc.edu.

We strive to send announcements as soon as possible. In general, expect a 2-3 business day turn-around. We may also combine announcements with others, delay sending certain announcements due to current events, and even reject requests if they do not fit the needs of the SCEC community.
