The Communications journals first introduced travel grants for early career researchers in 2018 to help promising researchers travel to an international scientific meeting of their choice that they would otherwise have not been able to attend due to a lack of funds.
The recipients were chosen by a judging panel consisting of both professional editors and practicing scientists, following a comprehensive assessment process.
