We are seeking nominations from the community for outstanding women involved in Antarctic Research. A small committee will help to coordinate the selection based on the criteria below.
Ideally, we would like all nominations submitted by 15 April to be included in the Wikibomb event on 23 August.
Notability - Guidelines for Antarctic Women WikiBomb
The guidelines for sufficient notability to be included in the encyclopaedia are any of:
- Highly significant research impact, as demonstrated by independent reliable sources
- e.g., overturned previous consensus, outstanding or unusual research
- Recipient of a highly prestigious award / prize at national or international level
- e.g., Martha T. Muse prize for Science and Policy In Antarctica, Distinguished Alumni, SCAR award, Australian Antarctic Medal
- Member / fellow of a highly selective and prestigious society
- e.g., National Academy of Sciences, Royal Society
- Impact on higher education, significant enough to affect many academic institutions or education at an international level
- Holds top elected or appointed position
- e.g., named chair, major academic post, chief journal editor, institute director, society president, senior minister, research station manager
- Substantial impact outside research in their professional capacity
- e.g., policy influence, outreach, exploration, conservation, photography
In reality, these are just guidelines. The real requirement is to find several published sources that reference their impact (journals, newspapers or magazines).
