Molecular Physics Longuet-Higgins Young Author's Prize
Nurturing tomorrow's researchers at the Chemistry-Physics interface

Journal cover: Molecular Physics

The Editors of Molecular Physics intend to award a prize of US$1000 to a talented, young writer who has made a significant contribution to a top quality paper published in the Journal during 2013, as judged by the Editors. We hope that the Prize will highlight the highest quality work of the next generation.

Eligible applicants for the Molecular Physics Longuet-Higgins Young Author's Prize are those who were studying for a PhD or had completed their PhD studies within the last five years at the time of publication of their paper. The paper must have been published in Molecular Physics, Volume 111, the content may be either theoretical or experimental and in any subject area falling within the remit of the Journal.

All authors of papers published in volume 111 of the Journal will be sent information about this prize and the senior co-author invited to complete a nomination form, giving information about the provenance of the nominee’s work and the contribution they have made. The Editors of the Journal will judge the Prize, but they may call for expert assistance in making their decision, which will be final.

The nomination form can be found at: www.tandf.co.uk/journals/authors/tmph-prize.doc
Closing date: 28th February 2014

Christopher Longuet-Higgins (1923 – 2004)

Christopher Longuet-Higgins and John van der Waals were visionaries who, in 1958, established Molecular Physics. They set out for the Journal to serve the community and "bring together papers on the physics of molecules, papers which might otherwise escape the notice of many interested readers".

As an established chemist, at the forefront of research at the interface between Chemistry and Physics, Christopher Longuet-Higgins published numerous papers in Molecular Physics, to which we are offering free access until July 2010. A pioneer in Theoretical Chemistry, he made outstanding contributions in Quantum Chemistry and Statistical Mechanics. For example his work on the symmetry of non-rigid molecules is highly renowned [Molecular Physics, 6, 445-460 (1963)], and in the theory of the condensed matter, Longuet-Higgins and Widom [Molecular Physics, 8, 549 – 556 (1964)] extended the classic mean-field theory of condensation to the freezing transition, these ideas providing the basis of modern thermodynamic perturbation theories of the liquid state. He has influenced many and inspired young scientists publishing today.
