JTP Scientific Awards

The Board of Directors and the Publication Committee of the Japanese Society of Toxicologic Pathology (JSTP) annually confer the JTP Scientific Awards to individuals and organizations for their distinguished contributions to the society's official journal, the Journal of Toxicologic Pathology (JTP).

The JTP Scientific Awards consist of 4 awards, the JTP Paper Award, the JTP Incentive Award, the JTP Achievement Award and the JTP Distinguished Service Award. The JTP Paper Award includes the JTP Best-Paper-of-the-Year Award and the JTP Excellent-Paper-of-the-Year Award, which are self-explanatory. The JTP Incentive Award is selected from the papers which are the first experiences for their first authors to submit papers to JTP.

The JTP Achievement Award is given to the most frequently referred paper for the preceding 5 years. The JTP Distinguished Service Award is given to an organization from which 5 (Bronze), 10 (Silver), 25 (Gold), 50 (Platinum) or 100 (Diamond) papers have been submitted. It should be noted that these awards are principally conferred to the JSTP members.
