Best Paper Awards in Mindfulness

Sponsored by UF Mindfulness
Submission Deadline: March 31, 2023

We invite submissions of publications for 'Best Paper Awards in Mindfulness' in two categories: 

(1) Mindfulness Research: qualitative and quantitative evidence-based mindfulness research; mixed-methods studies; meta-analysis, and comprehensive review of mindfulness research studies. 

(2) Conceptual & Experiential Mindfulness: theoretical studies about mindfulness, critical theory applied to mindfulness, mind-body practice applications, discussion of mindfulness meditation types/traditions, critical discussion of secular and non-secular mindfulness, phenomenological meditation case studies, mindfulness in education,  teaching and practice of mindfulness, and mindfulness applications in counseling, coaching, or psychotherapy. 

 

The submitted publications may include other topics besides mindfulness (e.g., mental health, wellness, wellbeing, human flourishing, spirituality, Buddhism, or other). However, papers competitive for the 'Best Paper in Mindfulness Awards' are required to focus on the goal to advance our understanding of mindfulness through study or discussion. 

Specific requirements for best paper submissions:

  • The publication was peer-reviewed and published.  Publications that qualify are journal articles with a DOI, book chapters, and books.  

  • The publication must be submitted in digital format (saving trees and reducing CO2 emissions)

  • The official publication date needs to fall within the time frame 1/1/2020 to 12/31/2022 (journals that publish pre-publication articles online within this time frame before they are published as hardcopy publication are acceptable)  

  • Multi-author teams or single UF authored publications are invited. For multi-authored papers at least one of the authors needs to be affiliated with UF.  Authors may be faculty member, student, Post-Doc, scholar, scientist, or other representing diverse voices.

  • Author-teams are encouraged to submit only their “best” and most significant publications. A specific UF author identified by unique ORCID number is limited to be part of up to three publications to be submitted for the Best Paper Awards in Mindfulness. Additional submissions (i.e., meaning that the same UF author is listed on 4+ submitted papers) will be automatically disqualified from the competition.
