The Awards are closed.

 
These awards will be presented at the North American and European Conferences and/or Local Group meetings where the winners will also receive a credit for either membership or registration to next year's ISMTE meeting. 

Nominations may be submitted by members or non-members of ISMTE. All nominated award winners must be current members of the ISMTE. We understand that not every member of the ISMTE works in an environment where there are other editorial staff and therefore our nomination process is purposefully unstructured and open to all.

ISMTE Award for Excellence
Please submit a letter of nomination (100 - 150 words ) outlining the work completed by the nominee and explaining why you consider this person should receive the award.
 
The ISMTE Award for Excellence recognizes members who possess a track record of success of helping their publications excel though consistent excellent service and exemplary management of their role. Nominations will be accepted from ISMTE members, as well as non-members who work with potential nominees.

ISMTE Award for Achievement or Innovation
Please submit a letter of nomination (100 - 150 words ) outlining the achievement or innovation undertaken by the nominee and how it pushed current boundaries.
 
With the Award for Achievement or Innovation, ISMTE aims to recognize those members who have improved their publications through exploration and innovation, pushing the boundaries of their role and expanding the meaning of what it means to be a professional managing or technical editor. Nominations will be accepted from ISMTE members, as well as non-members who work with potential nominees.

ISMTE Jason Roberts Founder's Award

2015 Award Winners

 
ISMTE Award for Excellence

Mary L. Chang
Publications Manager, American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Mary scored very highly in all three areas marked in this award, receiving the highest marks out of all nominees for both 'consistent excellent service' and 'exemplary management of their role.'

 


ISMTE Award for Achievement or Innovation


Tim Vines
Managing Editor, Molecular Ecology

Tim was a clear winner in this category with high scores in all three marked areas with an outstanding mark in 'improving their publications through exploration and innovation' which was clearly demonstrated to us in his nomination letter.

 


ISMTE Jason Roberts Founder's Award


Elizabeth Blalock
Managing Editor, Journal of Investigative Dermotology

The Founder’s Award is for those members who have reshaped our industry through an outstanding idea/contribution. Named after ISMTE’s founding president, Jason Roberts, this award recognizes members who have made extraordinary steps toward defining the future of peer review management.

We had three excellent nominations but the marks awarded by the individual members of the committee clearly placed Elizabeth ahead of her peers in both main areas considered in this award.

 

   

"Jan presented me the Founder's Award today at the RTP local group meeting. I'm honored to be recognized in this way by ISMTE. The organization means so much to me, and I am happy to continue to find ways contribute."
