Pratt-Severn Best Student Research Paper Award
Evaluated by the same rigorous standards as papers submitted for the Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, the best student research paper is judged on technical competence, significance of findings, originality and clarity of expression. The Award recognizes the outstanding work of a current student in a degree-granting program in the information field and has been sponsored by Pratt Institute since 1996.
