The Royal Statistical Society is accepting entries for the Statistical Excellence Award in Early Career Writing 2018. The award recognizes statistical excellence in early career writing undergraduate and graduate students around the world.
Are you an early-career statistician with the ability to write data-driven stories in an entertaining and thought-provoking way? If so, we invite you to enter the 2018 Statistical Excellence Award for Early-Career Writing. The competition is jointly organised by Significance and the Young Statisticians Section of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and forms part of the RSS Statistical Excellence Awards programme.
Three finalists will be selected in June, with the winner announced in July at the RSS Statistical Excellence Awards ceremony. The winning article will be published in the October issue of Significance, and online at significancemagazine.com. Runners-up may also be published online or in print at the editor’s discretion.
The winning author and runners-up will be invited to give presentations based on their articles at a special session of the Royal Statistical Society International Conference (3–6 September 2018 in Cardiff, Wales).
