NJP has always been a journal that embraces innovation. And the potential we see in new researchers is something we think should be celebrated. So we’ve created the New Journal of Physics Early Career Award.


The winner will receive: up to €1000; one full article publication charge waiver to be used in NJP by the end of the year following the award, and 50% waiver on the next two papers; awarded an official certificate; and a video interview will be featured on the NJP YouTube Channel.

Runners-up will receive one full article publication charge waiver to be used within the following 12 months from the award.
