AOS 2019 Katma Publications Awards

Open: Monday, October 22, 2018 9:00:00 AM - Friday, December 14, 2018 5:00:00 PM



The Katma Publications Award recognizes papers proposing ideas or testing theories that replace current dogma or settled opinion and that could change the course of thinking about the biology of birds. Papers may also include those that propose a largely untested idea or those that develop and advance it. The award may be given to research articles, short communications, or commentaries (e.g., editorials, reviews) of any length published in any scientific venue. This unique award was established by the Cooper Ornithological Society in 2003 through a generous gift of the late Robert W. Storer.

Papers with one or two authors are preferred; nomination of papers with several co-authors must specify the contribution of each. Self-nominations are eligible for consideration. 

Nominations should include a pdf of the paper or series of papers and a 1-2 page letter describing how the nomination fits the qualifications outlined above. 

Nominations are Closed
