The annual WITec Paper Award competition recognizes exceptional scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals that include results acquired with a WITec microscope. Scientists from all over the world and any field of application are encouraged to submit their work from the current year.
Participating is easy! Just send your publication(s) to papers@WITec.de in PDF format. (For details, see conditions of participation below.)
The entry deadline is January 31 of each year, i.e. you can submit your publications from the current year until the end of January next year.
Any co-author can submit a paper, and their participation will automatically enter their name in a prize draw that will take place shortly after the submission deadline. The prizes are 10 WITec backpacks with RFID protection.
In spring every year, a WITec jury will evaluate the submitted papers from the previous year in terms of scientific relevance, data quality and the level of instrument feature utilization to determine the winners. The first author(s) of the three winning publications will receive Amazon™ gift cards as prizes: 500€, 300€ and 200€ for the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners, respectively.

2023: The submission window for the Paper Award 2023 is now closed. Our jury will review the publications and announce the winners this spring. Thank you very much for your participation.
