Fylde Best Paper in Strain Prize


The Fylde Best Paper in Strain Prize is an annual prize which is awarded by the Strain Journal's Editors and sponsored by the BSSM's Corporate Member, Fylde Electronic Laboratories. A shortlist of papers is created by the Editor and Associate Editors based on referees comments on the papers which is then passed onto a panel of experts selected from the Editorial Board. The Fylde Best Paper in Strain Prize winners receive a cash prize of £250 and are invited to attend the BSSM's annual conference free of charge and present their paper during a special conference plenary session.  The winners are usually announced and prizes presented during the BSSM's annual conference Gala Dinner. Previous winners are listed below.

BSSM members are able to access Strain Journal papers. Find out about BSSM membership benefits or how to join here.
