With much anticipated excitement since its launch in July 2012, the new GSS cIRcle Open Scholar Award was presented to the inaugural winners on October 18 by the GSS Council. The GSS cIRcle Open Scholar Award ‘aims are to feature UBC as a leader in the open dissemination of exemplary non-thesis graduate coursework; and to create an incentive for graduate students to populate cIRcle with material beyond theses and dissertations.’ It is ‘a lottery-style award worth $500’ with the ‘knowledge that the winning work is made publicly available and administered on a long-term basis by UBC Library’.
Congratulations to the two Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) systematic reviews and research project groups in PHTH 572!
The award winners are:
