ISSBD Awards

ISSBD grants up to four awards at their Biennial Meetings and the Awards Committee is chaired by Professor Toni Antonucci. The four awards are as follows:

(1) ISSBD Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award: honors a single individual who has made distinguished theoretical or empirical contributions to basic research, student training, and other scholarly endeavors in Behavioral Development. Evaluations are based on the scientific merit of the individual's work, and the significance of this work for generating new empirical or theoretical areas in the study of Behavioral Development.

(2) ISSBD Distinguished Scientific Award for the Applications of Behavioral Development Theory and Research: honors researchers who have made distinguished theoretical or empirical advances in Behavioral Development leading to the understanding or amelioration of important practical problems. The award is for an individual whose work has contributed not only to the science of Behavioral Development, but who has also worked to the benefit of the application of science to society. The individual's contributions may have been made through advocacy, direct service, influencing public policy or education, or through any other routes that enable the science of Behavioral Development to improve the welfare of children and/or adults, and/or families.

(3) ISSBD Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Research and Theory in Behavioural Development: honors distinguished and enduring lifetime contributors to international cooperation and advancement of knowledge.

(4) ISSBD Young Scientist Award: recognizes an early career scientist who has made a distinguished theoretical contribution to the study of Behavioral Development, has conducted programmatic research of distinction, or has made a distinguished contribution to the dissemination of developmental science. The award is for continued efforts rather than a single outstanding work. Scientists who are within seven years of completion of the doctoral degree are eligible.
