Restrictions

The author/editor need not be a Member of the Association. The preponderance of material in the book must not have been published before. Co-authors or co-editors will share in the award. Authors of individual papers in a compilation are not eligible unless involved as an editor or co-editor.

Guidelines for Consideration of Candidates

All Special Publications published by the Association within the calendar year are considered for this award. The elected Editor will solicit recommendations from the Associate Editors; however, recommendations are welcomed from all sources.

Procedure for Recommendation

Nominations should be submitted to the Editor on or before March 1 following the year of publication. The Editor will forward his recommendations to the Chairman of the Honors and Awards Committee. Its recommendations will be transmitted to the Advisory Council which will in turn transmit its selection to the Executive Committee for final approval.

Description of Award

The award is $500.00 cash and a certificate bearing the recipient’s name and the title of the award-winning publication. Co-authors/co-editors share equally.

History

The Robert H. Dott, Sr. Award was created by Executive Committee action to honor and reward authors of original articles dealing with petroleum geology published by the Association. The first award was made in 1945. In 1980, the award was expanded to recognize both the best Bulletin article and the best Special Publication. In 1982 it was changed to apply only to the best Special Publication. In 1988 the name was changed from the President’s Award to the Robert H. Dott, Sr. Memorial Award.

Funding

Funding for the award is provided through the AAPG Foundation Awards Fund through generous contributions from Robert H. Dott’s many colleagues, friends and family as a lasting memorial.
