Fellows' Achievements

The fellowship of the RSC comprises distinguished men and women from all branches of learning who have made remarkable contributions in the arts, the humanities and the sciences, as well as in Canadian public life. The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) strongly encourages its Fellows to submit news of their achievements to the Secretariat of the Society. The collection and dissemination of accolades and publications is one manner in which the RSC promotes the accomplishments of Fellows, and promotes a culture of intellectual achievement in Canada.

Achievements are either accolades or publications. An accolade is an honour or a form of recognition bestowed upon a Fellow of the Society. A publication is an article in a peer-reviewed journal, a chapter of a book, or a book. 

For further information and submission guidelines, please see the following RSC Policy on Accolades and Publications.
