SRI’s Writing Prize aims for greater diversity in its third year

If you’re a spinal cord injury researcher or clinician, we’re asking you to write about your research in 800 words or less. This is a unique opportunity to present your research to a broad-ranging, non-scientific audience, and that’s why we’d like you to use easy-to-understand language.

We’re excited about the spinal cord injury research that is being conducted around the world, in developed and developing nations. We understand that submitting an entry for this prize may be challenging for researchers and clinicians whose first language is not English. That’s why, for the first time this year, we’re offering special consideration and support for these authors, particularly those from countries with low to very-low English language proficiency.

All shortlisted entries will be published in the third edition of Why Research Matters, and their authors will be offered a place in a workshop that explores research translation and impact. This is the third year of the SCI Writing Prize, and previous shortlisted entries published in the first two editions of Why Research Matters are available at the link below.

Entries close on 31 August, so get busy writing!
