Purpose: the award aims to support new researchers in mathematics education and encourage them to produce more high-quality research outputs
Number of Awardee: 1 (there will be 2 finalists)
Evaluation Processes: Submissions to the New Researchers’ Day conference will be scored based on the selection criterion [maximum score for each criterion is 10, so total score for one submission is 40] (see below). Based on the scores, the awardee would be selected.

Benefits for Awardee: 1-year BSRLM Membership with free attendances for next year conferences, support for presenting at main conference. Highlighting of the award/proceedings on the BSRLM Website.
Selection Criteria: For the written proceedings: originality, understandability, appropriate research design and methods, significance for mathematics education (for the last three, the stage of study would be considered).
Workshop: 30-min workshop about conference proceeding writing during New Researchers’ Day (Prof. Jeremy Hodgen) – support from Dr. Rachel Marks (BSRLM’s Publications Co-ordinator) on conference proceeding writing (some guidelines).
Note: a member of the BSRLM Executive would be on hand at the first full conference if they wanted to discuss how to prepare a presentation for a future conference.
