Impact Awards for Publications
Deadline: Applications Accepted at Anytime
What are Impact Awards?
Impact awards provide funding for individuals and/or teams of researchers to gather and develop high impact publications based on research conducted as part of the Solar Energy-Water-Environment Nexus in Nevada project. An important aspect of the project is measureable outcomes that highlight the scientific and societal value. High impact journals are those considered to be highly regarded in the field of a given research topic with a high journal ranking.1 Submissions to journals such as Science and Nature, etc. are especially valued as they are places where a broad audience is exposed to the project results.
