The J. Frances Allen Institute of Malacology Outstanding Publication Award
The Board of Directors of the Institute of Malacology, publisher of the academic journal Malacologia, is pleased to announce the creation of the J. Frances Allen Institute of Malacology Outstanding Publication Award. This cash award of $500 will be presented for an outstanding paper published in Malacologia by a student, with the timing dependent on the superior quality of the student paper as judged by a committee of the IM Board. There is no formal application or deadline. A student submitting a manuscript must be sole or senior author of the paper, and should indicate that the paper being submitted stems from Master’s or Ph.D. research to confirm his or her eligibility for the award. The Allen Publication Award was established in 2011 to honor J. Frances “Jady” Allen, who provided indispensable help and guidance in establishing the journal Malacologia in 1962.
