Publication Awards


The Metabolomics Society's Publication Awards recognise outstanding scientific publications within the Metabolomics journal.

The Best Paper Award recognises the paper with the highest total number of citations during the previous three years. The winner receives a $300 gift certificate for Springer books, a certificate from the President of the Society, a front cover image in the Metabolomics journal, and the paper will be made open access for 30 days. The runner-up receives a certificate from the President of the Society.

The Highest Download Award recognises the paper with the highest total number of downloads during the previous three years. The winner and runner-up each receive a certificate from the President of the Society.
