Nomination forms are emailed to SRAI International members at the beginning of each year.

Papers and Posters should represent an important contribution to the research administration body of knowledge or successful demonstrate significant milestones of success that are of interest or importance. They should not be used as a marketing resource for an institution's success but should articulate advances in research administration or management.
