Rosalind Franklin Society and Mary Ann Liebert Inc. proudly announce
The RFS / MAL Award in Science
At a time of burgeoning breakthroughs and accomplishments in science, Mary Ann Liebert Inc., in partnership with the Rosalind Franklin Society, is launching a prestigious annual award for the best paper by a woman in science or under-represented minority in each of the publisher’s 100 peer-reviewed journals. The Award will be known as the RFS / MAL Award in Science. We believe this is an important way to highlight the important contributions of these scientists and provide role models and mentors for younger scientists following in their footsteps. The Award is being launched this fall in all of the Liebert journals in science, medicine, and biotechnology. Each winner will receive $1,000 and a personalized plaque. All Award winners will be announced in July 2022 in honor of Rosalind Franklin’s birthday, and we will publish an anthology of their abstracts. In addition, they will be featured in interviews, speaking opportunities, and press releases. We will of course work in partnership with related professional societies and other partners to showcase these leading scientists each year.
