The nomination deadline for BioMed Central’s 5th Annual Research Awards has been extended by two weeks to Friday 14th January 2011. These awards celebrate some of the most groundbreaking open access research that was published in BioMed Central’s 200+ journals last year.
In true open access style these awards are open for public nomination to members of the research community. Prizes will be awarded for excellence in research from areas of biology and medicine. The Open Data Award has returned a second year, due to its popularity at the 4th Annual Research Awards and this time it too is open to public nominations. The Open Data Award recognizes researchers who have published in BioMed Central’s journals and have demonstrated leadership in the sharing, standardization, publication, or re-use of biomedical research data.
