Dear HAA students,
The Herpetological Association of Africa would like to award the best student first-authored manuscript, published or accepted for publication in the African Journal of Herpetology in the four issues immediately prior to the next HAA conference. That is, if your manuscript has been accepted for publication in the AJH for issues 66-69, you stand a chance to receive a cash reward of ZAR 5000! To stand a chance of winning this award, submit your manuscript to AJH now! When submitting online, please check the box that indicates that your manuscript is eligible.
Articles will be evaluated by a committee of HAA members, none of whom have students in the competition, and judged based on technical merit, originality, relevance and potential impact on the field of African herpetology, as well as clarity of writing. Announcement of the award will be made at the, 14th Herpetological Association of Africa Conference, 9th-13th September 2019, Cape St. Francis, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
Conditional clause: the competition will only be run if there were at least two student publications in the last four journal issues.
