Lee Segel Prizes

The Bulletin of Mathematical Biology awards a series of prizes, funded by Springer, linked to papers published in the journal.
There are three prize categories:
- Prize of $3,000 for the best original research student paper (awarded every two years)
- Prize of $5,000 for the best original research paper (awarded every two years)
- Prize of $4,000 for the best review paper (awarded every three years).
It is important when a paper is submitted that the authors indicate if the first author is a student. We would also like referees to indicate if they feel that a paper they are reviewing should be considered for a prize.
Please contact bmb@maths.ox.ac.uk if you require further information regarding the prizes.

    Aims and Scope


    The Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, the official journal of the Society for Mathematical Biology, disseminates original researching findings at the interface of biology and the mathematical sciences. Articles should take care to address this broad audience.

    The articles can range from biologically motivated investigations in the mathematical sciences, broadly defined, to results that combine concepts and tools from the mathematical sciences with experiment or observation. All contributions, however, must be focused on a substantial advance in biological understanding. The core aim of the journal is to be of major interest to all researchers working at the interface of biology and the mathematical sciences, and articles should take care to address this broad audience.

    Mathematical biology has become a multi-faceted and fast-moving field, and researchers need to be cognizant of a plethora of new developments and changes that affect their work, which are not always captured by the original research article format. Therefore, the Bulletin will serve its readers through several new kinds of articles. These include a variety of types of articles such as review articles, methods articles, editor’s choice articles, perspectives and unsolved problems as well as articles that discuss ideas, methods, tools, and activities to enhance research and education, both inside and outside the classroom. All articles will be peer reviewed.
