Award submissions are currently closed. More information coming soon.
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.
