Ludwig Narziß Award for Brewing Science

The brewing industry unites science and practical application in an extraordinary way. For more than 60 years, the journal BrewingScience and its predecessors have served as a platform for the dissemination of knowledge not only among researchers but also between the scientific community and the brewing industry. The time has come to recognize the efforts of brewing scientists in the form of an award for excellence in research.

The publishing house Fachverlag Hans Carl and the Weihenstephan Jubiläumsstiftung 1905 im Verband ehemaliger Weihenstephaner der Brauerabteilung e.V. are very pleased to be able to bring this idea to life. They have found a namesake for this award, a person who over many decades has helped shape brewing science and who likewise has played an instrumental role in promoting its practical application.

Therefore, the journal BrewingScience, a publication of the Fachverlag Hans Carl of Nuremberg, is proud to announce that the

Ludwig Narziß Award for Brewing Science

will be presented for the first time ever in 2015. An article appearing in the journal BrewingScience will be selected in which scientific results are found to be particularly relevant for implementation in the brewing industry. The author(s) will then be honored with an award.

Especially the former doctoral students of Prof. Ludwig Narziß have been actively involved in planning and organizing this project. The concept will be introduced in BRAUWELT International issue 4, 2015. (http://www.brauweltinternational.com) Thanks to the commitment of this group of former doctoral students funding is already available for the first award ceremony in November 2015.

However, we would be very pleased if companies or individuals with an interest in brewing science cold further support the project financially in order to honor Prof. Narziß for his achievements in the long term.

More details can be found in the short profile of the Ludwig Narziß Award for Brewing Science, which is attached.

Ludwig Narziß Award for Brewing Science – Short Profile

The award is designed to formally recognize one BrewingScience publication in which the results are particularly relevant for application in the brewing industry (in the broadest sense, including topics in malting, hop processing, packaging, etc.).

All articles which appear in the journal BrewingScience or the yearbook within one publication year are considered as entries.

Administration of donations: Weihenstephaner Jubiläumsstiftung 1905 im Verband ehemaliger Weihenstephaner der Brauerabteilung e.V.

Review process:
Fachverlag Hans Carl, Nuremberg

As a rule, the scientific articles are sent for peer review to three evaluators who are experts in their fields. They therefore possess a deep and extensive understanding of the topic in question. (The peer review committee for BrewingScience can be found under www.brewingscience.de / Group of Experts)

The articles will be reviewed and scored using a rating scale ranging from 0 (least relevant for brewing practice) to 5 (most relevant for brewing practice) based on their relevance and applicability in brewing.
A mean score is calculated for each entry, which is used to sort the entries on the basis of their scores. Only the author(s) of the single article receiving the highest score will be announced.

Advisory Board:
An advisory board will be created to adjudicate in cases of articles receiving identical scores or for the resolution of disputes regarding further procedures.

The monetary sum of the award is yet to be announced.

The award will be financed through donations. All interested parties are allowed to make a donation.

Award Ceremony:
The first award will be presented by Prof. Ludwig Narziß at the BrauBeviale 2015 trade fair.
