The award is granted for journalistic work and planned investigation projects in the fields of science and research that are convincing on account of both a clear presentation of scientific facts and the investigation of political, scientific or societal backgrounds. Journalistic articles that shed light on the structure and function of self-monitoring and quality assurance in science in a constructive manner are expressly welcome.
