Australasian Sleep Association Best Quarterley Publication Award

The Australasian Sleep Association (ASA) is awarding a prize to the best paper in the field of sleep research published by an ASA member between 1 October – 31 December 2016. This Award aims to showcase and drive wider knowledge exchange for current sleep research, within the ASA and the wider scientific community.

ASA will be hosting these awards on a quarterly basis throughout the year and we invite all sleep researchers who have recently published their peer-reviewed journal article and are members of ASA to apply. All applicants will benefit from submitting their publications by obtaining greater exposure for their paper. The winner (as voted openly by multidisciplinary researchers from around the world) will receive $500, and the opportunity to promote this on their CV. The application process is very simple and must be done online using the following link:

Who's eligible?
To apply you must be a member of the ASA, and have published a paper in the field of sleep research between October 1st - December 31st 2016 (either in print or Epub/pre-print ahead of print). Each paper is only eligible once (i.e. If the Epub/pre-print ahead of print date is selected then the same paper is not also eligible for consideration in a subsequent round).

How to Apply?
Simply share a summary about your research paper/implications and add a PubMed link and/or DOI or repository link so anyone can access your paper to learn more. You have the option to upload a summary video about the research, which has been shown to engage a wider audience with your work. If you would like to create a video, check out our guide for hints or watch the hundreds of other research videos in other Thinkable competitions.
