Help us continue to recognize the groundbreaking science done within our community by submitting a nomination for the 2020 Geological Society of America Structural Geology and Tectonics Division Outstanding Publication Award. This award is given annually for a published work (paper, book, or map) of exceptional distinction that clearly advances the science of structural geology or tectonics.  The Outstanding Publication Award is not limited to members of the Division or the Society, and awardees may be single or multiple authors, with no restrictions as to nationality, citizenship, publisher or publishing agency.

The award may not be given posthumously unless the decision to give the award is made before the death of the awardee(s).

Nominations submitted in 2019 will be considered again this year.

The nomination process is simple, quick, and enjoyable.

Nominations include:
(1) A full citation.
(2) Nomination (as short as a paragraph; letters or reviews may also be included).
Nominations might address these questions:
• Why is the publication exceptional?
• How has the contribution changed your work?
• What are specific advances made by the publication?
• How has the work influenced the work of others?
(3) Name and address of nominator.
