The Accelerating Science Award Program
The Accelerating Science Award Program (ASAP) recognizes individuals who
have applied scientific research – published through Open Access – to
innovate in any field and benefit society. Anyone can nominate an
individual or team. Individuals are also free to nominate themselves.
The ASAP Program awards individuals who have used, applied, or remixed
scientific research – published through Open Access – to make a difference
in science, medicine, business, technology or society as a whole. Potential
nominees include individuals, teams, or groups of collaborators such as
scientists, researchers, educators, technology leaders, entrepreneurs,
policy makers, patient advocates, public health workers, and students.
The innovative use in any field must be based on research articles or
content published through Open Access before May 1st, 2013 in a
peer-reviewed journal or in a repository recognized in the Open Access
community. If the innovative use creates a scholarly output, it must be
Open Access. *See the Program Rules
The ASAP Program seeks to build awareness and encourage the use of
scientific research — published through Open Access — in transformative
ways. The program illuminates how the unrestricted exchange of information
can advance science and medicine, and benefit society. The ASAP Program
also aspires to encourage a new generation of individuals to embrace the
application of scientific research published through Open Access.
The ASAP Program is sponsored by 24 global
organizations<http://asap.plos.org/sponsors/>that value the
transformative impact of applying scientific research
published through Open Access to extend the reach of science and medicine.
Major sponsors include Google, PLOS, and the Wellcome Trust.
The ASAP Program will award three top awards of $30,000 each. A
representative for each top award winner will receive a trip to Washington,
DC in October 2013, where they will be honored at an Open Access Week event
hosted by SPARC and the World Bank. The ASAP Program will also recognize
Honorable Mentions, who will be highlighted on the program website and in a
portfolio book distributed online and in print around the world. *See
Rules <http://asap.plos.org/nominate/rules/> for details.*
