eLife is proud to sponsor the Accelerating Science Award Program (ASAP) – a new effort from Google, PLOS and the Wellcome Trust to recognize uses of open-access research that have led to innovations that benefit society – in any field.

ASAP will showcase individuals who have used, applied or remixed open-access scientific research to make a difference for science, medicine, business, technology or society as a whole. Potential nominees include individuals, teams or groups of collaborators – such as scientists, researchers, educators, social services, technology leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, patient advocates, public health workers, and students – who have used scientific research in transformative ways.

Did a research article in eLife, PLOS Biology, or PLOS Medicine drive you toward a new conclusion? Did this information inspire a new drug or the way you teach your students?

Advances must have been inspired by work published before May 1, 2013 under a Creative Commons-Attribution or Creative Commons Zero license.

Three top awards of $30,000 each will be presented. The nomination period is open from May 1 to June 15, 2013. Winners will be announced in Washington, DC in October 2013.
