Open Scholar Award winners announced

Congratulations to the latest winners of the GSS cIRcle Open Scholar Award, a collaboration between the Graduate Student Society and cIRcle, UBC’s digital repository. The Open Scholar Award highlights UBC as a leader in the open dissemination of graduate student work, and creates an incentive for graduate students to populate cIRcle with material beyond theses and dissertations.

The latest winners include Sam Bailey and Shona Robinson for their entry Aesthetic Assessment of Drinking Water at UBC: A Comparison of Waterfillz and Tap Water and Christian Brady for Podcasting Lucan and the Classical World. Authors of each winning submission receive $500, and their work is made publicly available on a long-term basis by UBC Library.

The award, given twice a year, is based on a lottery system. The submission deadline for the next award instalment is March 24, 2014, though submissions can be made at any time –visit cIRcle for more information.
