The Materials Literature Review Prize encourages the writing of definitive, critical reviews of the literature by students as an essential part of study for a higher degree, and subsequently makes the best of these available to a wider readership. The winning review and selected highly commended reviews are published in the journal.
Initiated by David West and Jim Charles in 2000, the competition has been developed under John Knott to include a masterclass at which finalists make short presentations and receive feedback on a first draft of their review from a panel of experts drawn from the Materials Science and Technology Editorial Board.
The Prize is open to any postgraduate studying for a materials science and engineering related qualification at a UK institution.
