Two Denny Medals are awarded each year to the lead authors of the best papers by the IMarEST Council, following reccomendations from the Publications Supervisory Board (PSB).
Lead authors of the winning papers are presented with the medal by the IMarEST President and also receive an invitation to the IMarEST's Annual Dinner.
How are papers chosen?
Papers must have been published in a complete issue, supplement or online issue of the Journal of Marine Engineering Technology (JMET) or the Journal of Operational Oceanography in the IMarEST membership year for which the judging is taking place.
Judging is undertaken by the Editorial Boards of each Journal who consider each paper for each of the below and then recommend to which paper(s) up to a maximum of three should be considered.
Papers are selected according to:
- Influence & Impact
- Accuracy of Content
- Originality & Innovation
- Completeness & Consistency
- Presentation & Clarity
Inscribed medals are awarded to the lead author(s), with individual authors all receiving a certificate.
