Nominations open for the 2018 John Maddox Prize for Standing up for Science

26 June 2018

The John Maddox Prize recognises the work of individuals who promote sound science and evidence on a matter of public interest, facing difficulty or hostility in doing so.

Sir John Maddox, whose name this prize commemorates, was a passionate and tireless champion and defender of science, engaging with difficult debates and inspiring others to do the same. As a writer and editor, he changed attitudes and perceptions, and strove for better understanding and appreciation of science throughout his long working life.

Candidates for the John Maddox Prize must be nominated. The nominator should normally be an individual who is familiar with the work of the candidate, but self-nomination will be considered in exceptional circumstances.

The winner of the John Maddox Prize receives £3000, and an announcement of the winner is published in Nature.

Nominations close on 13 August. The award is presented each year at a reception in November.
