Behavioral Scientist Recognized with Editorial and Design Awards

Behavioral Scientist’s Brain Meets World was recognized for its journalism and design with six awards from the 2023 Folio Awards. Folio’s annual awards recognize “excellence in editorial content and design across print and digital media.”

Brain Meets World earned the top editorial award for a full issue in the Science & Technology category, as well as an honorable mention for a full issue in the Design category.

“A Cognitive Labor of Love,” by Allison Daminger, won for best article in the Family & Parenting category. In the witty and personal essay, Daminger confronts the clash between her two selves: a sociologist who studies the division of household labor and a young woman navigating her engagement and planning her future family.

Two articles earned honorable mentions in the Long-form Feature category:

  • “Behavioral Science in the Backcountry” by Greg Rosalsky—about the quest to understand the “human factors” in avalanche deaths
  • “Places Unexpected” by Evan Nesterak—about two road-tripping neuroscientists, who traded the lab for a year on the road

This article duo was also recognized by the American Society of Journalists and Author’s 2023 Awards.

Rounding out the recognition, the seven-part feature “Journey to Robbers Cave”—about the story of one psychologist’s bold attempt to address global conflict—was acknowledged with an honorable mention in the Feature Design category. The piece featured never-before-published archival photos, images, and documents from the Robbers Cave studies.
