Annals of Internal Medicine Junior Investigator Awards
In 2010, Annals of Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians began recognizing excellence among internal medicine trainees and junior investigators with annual awards for original research and scholarly review articles published in Annals in each of the following categories:
Most outstanding article with a first author in an internal medicine residency program or a general medicine or internal medicine subspecialty fellowship program
Most outstanding article with a first author within 3 years following completion of training in internal medicine or one of its subspecialties
Selection of award winners will consider the article's novelty, methodological rigor, clarity of presentation, and potential to influence practice, policy, or future research. Judges will include Annals Editors and representatives from Annals' Editorial Board and the American College of Physicians' Education/Publication Committee.
Papers are eligible for the award in the year of their publication. First author status at the time of manuscript submission will determine eligibility. Authors should indicate that they wish to have their papers considered for an award when they submit the manuscript, and they must be able to provide satisfactory documentation of their eligibility if selected for an award. Announcement of awards for a calendar year will occur in January of the subsequent year. We will provide award winners with a framed certificate, a letter documenting the award, and complimentary registration for the American College of Physicians' annual meeting.
