It was with great sadness that we report the passing away of Journal of Futures Studies Consulting Editor, Jan Lee Martin. She died early August from cancer. In late July, knowing that her days were near, she asked that I help set up a foundation of sorts to help support scholars in more effectively communicating the future. Among the projects she suggested was an annual best paper award for contributions to the Journal of Futures Studies. The editors are pleased to announce this award for best article and best essay published in 2011. The Jan Lee Martin Best Publication Award amount will be 500 AUD for the best article and 500 AUD for the best essay.
