The British Pharmacological Society awards an annual prize of £1,000 for the best paper published in BJCP during an academic year – known as The BJCP Prize.
Those eligible are Registrars in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (usually ST3s and above) registered for Higher Medical Training in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and those in comparable training schemes (including PhD schemes) elsewhere. Potentially eligible authors are contacted by the Editorial Office at the end of each academic year and invited to complete an application form, giving information about the provenance of the work and the precise role played by the potential award winner.
The BJCP Prize winner is entitled to one year of complimentary membership of the British Pharmacological Society (BPS); benefits of BPS membership include online access to both BPS journals – BJCP and British Journal of Pharmacology, access to travel bursaries and attendance at the annual meeting in London, which is free for members to attend.
