RESEARCH AWARDS


Breaking Convention is proud to announce that we have closed nominations for the first annual research awards, and selected winners. We will be giving four awards of £500, one each for best published Scientific, Social Science, Humanities publications, and Best Newcomer to Psychedelic Research. The criteria were simple, the publication must be peer reviewed, from 2016/2017, and, of course, about psychedelics. Doctoral Theses and Masters Dissertations will be considered and are very much encouraged to apply.
