Best PLOS Genetics research article from 2014 will receive a $5000 prize.

“What did you do when you turned 10?,” asked PLOS Genetics publications assistant Amy Yau in a recent blog post. “Throw a party? Have a sleepover? Eat chocolate cake? We would love to do all these things with our readers, authors and editors (especially the chocolate cake), but after much deliberation, we decided on a more research-oriented birthday treat.”

In celebration of the journal’s ten year anniversary, and in lieu of anything more age-appropriate (I personally would always vote cake), the PLOS Genetics senior editiorial team are calling for the public to nominate the best research article published by the journal in 2014. The winner will receive a $5000 prize. 

Get involved by nominating your favourite paper (even if it’s one of your own!). Nominations are open until 10:59 AM UTC on Wednesday September 16 2015.
