AAOS issues call for manuscripts

The AAOS is soliciting manuscripts for the 2012 Kappa Delta Awards and the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) Clinical Research Award. Up to two $20,000 Kappa Delta awards, one $20,000 Kappa Delta Young Investigator award, and one $20,000 OREF award will be bestowed.

Manuscripts should represent a large body of cohesive scientific work generally reflecting years of investigation. If the submission reflects a single project, it should be of high significance and impact. Manuscripts must be submitted by members (or candidate members) of the AAOS, the Orthopaedic Research Society, the Canadian Orthopaedic Association, or the Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society.

Submissions for the 2012 Kappa Delta and OREF Clinical Research Awards will be accepted in electronic format only. A PDF of the entire submission must be e-mailed to kappadelta@aaos.org no later than 11:59 PM CDT on July 1, 2011. Late submissions will not be considered.
