eLife Starts an Awards Program for Underrepresented Scientists

eLife announced that it “is piloting a new funding scheme to help authors from underrepresented groups showcase their research.

“The Ben Barres Spotlight Awards will support scientists in their efforts to strengthen their work with opportunities for exposure and collaboration. It is named in honour of transgender neurobiologist and former eLife Reviewing Editor Ben Barres, from Stanford University, US, who lost the fight with pancreatic cancer in December 2017.

“In line with Barres’ advocacy work for greater equality in the scientific workforce, and eLife’s own goals of encouraging and recognising responsible behaviours in science, the organisation has created the funding scheme to help promote greater diversity.”

The awards are available to authors who publish in eLife and identify with one or more of the unrepresented groups that the program addresses—scientists from resource-scarce countries, those disadvantaged because of their gender or disability, and others.

For more information, read the press release.
