The Electrodeposition Division Research Award was established in 1979 to recognize outstanding research contributions to the field of electrodeposition and to encourage the publication of high quality papers in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society.
Nomination Period: October 15 – January 15, annually
Presented: Fall meeting, annually
Only current members of the Electrochemical Society and the Electrodeposition division may be considered for this award.
The recipient will have made some recent outstanding achievement in, or contribution to, the field of electrodeposition. The award will be given to an author or co-authors of a paper or papers, at least one of which must have appeared in the Journal or other ECS publications, reporting this new achievement. As supporting evidence, the patent literature may also enter into consideration if the achievement has been made the subject of letters of patent by the author(s).
The importance and significance of the achievement or contribution will be judged on the basis of the paper(s) in which it is reported. In order to be considered, the paper(s) should be distinguished by the following:
- originality of concept of design of experiments
- scientific excellence as related to the experimental thoroughness, theoretical treatment and logic of conclusions
- clarity of presentation
- overall importance of the contribution to the fundamental and/or applied aspects of electrodeposition
The award consists of a scroll, a US $2,000 prize, and an ELDP Division Business Luncheon ticket. If the award is made jointly to two or more co-recipients, duplicate citations and luncheon tickets will be presented to each recipient. The cash award, however, will remain unchanged and will be equally divided among the award recipients.
