E4 award papers over the yearsSubmitted by editor on 1 February 2024.
The E4 Award is given every year to an early-career research scientist who writes an exceptional Review manuscript. The winner receives a €1000 cash prize and the runner-up receives €500. The topic of the paper should focus on spatial and/or temporal patterns, particularly studies of population and community ecology, macroecology, biogeography, ecological genetics, historical ecology, evolution, macroevolution, and conservation.
Our early-career E4 award papers are more downloaded and cited than the average research paper for Ecography. In addition, they tend to have high altmetrics scores. Learn more and find out how to apply: http://www.ecography.org/news/e4-award.
