Materials Literature Review Prize

The IOM3 Materials Literature Review Prize aims to encourage the preparation of definitive, critical reviews of the literature by students as an essential part of study for a higher degree in the materials field. The best of these are subsequently made available to a wider readership. The prize is administered by the editorial board of the journal Materials Science and Technology (MST).

Open to any postgraduate student studying in the UK or internationally, the prize carries a cash award in line with other IOM3 publication awards. A winning entry and two runner up prizes are awarded each year, and all entries are considered for publication in the journal, subject to acceptance following peer-review.
