The AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize
The Newcomb Cleveland Prize is awarded annually by the American Academy for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to the authors of the most impactful research paper published in the journal Science. To choose the winning study, the selection committee solicits additional peer reviews of finalist papers and judges them on impact in their field and wider, interdisciplinary significance. This year the prize was awarded to an international team led by Keith Bannister (CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science) for the paper "A single fast radio burst localized to a massive galaxy at cosmological distance." This work was described in ADAPs from July 2nd and July 4th 2019. The authors received their award in a virtual ceremony this week during the 187th AAAS Annual Meeting. (Image credit: AAAS)
