The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons (ABJS), in conjunction with Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research (CORR), is seeking papers for the Nicolas Andry Award ($10,000), the Marshall R. Urist Young Investigator Award ($5,000), and the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) Richard A. Brand Award for Outstanding Orthopaedic Research ($25,000).
The Urist Award is limited to orthopaedic surgeon investigators younger than age 40 or with fewer than 7 years of post-training (including fellowships) at the time of application. The submitted work must deal with clinically relevant laboratory or clinical research related to the musculoskeletal system and should reflect work primarily done by the young investigator. This research may not have won an award or been previously published as a full paper. Only one manuscript per principal investigator may be submitted.
The Andry Award is open to experienced orthopaedic investigators, including surgeons doing clinically relevant basic or patient-oriented research. Submissions should review a body of musculoskeletal research that has significantly contributed to orthopaedic knowledge and has been conducted and published over an extended period of time. The work may be ongoing. Bodies of work that in substance have received previous awards are not eligible. Only one manuscript per principal investigator may be submitted.
The Brand Award is open to ORS or ABJS members in good standing. The manuscript must be an original work and eligible for submission to CORR. This research may not have won an award or been previously submitted for publication to any journal. Only one manuscript per principal investigator may be submitted.
The submission deadline for the Andry and Urist awards is Nov. 15, 2014; the submission deadline for the Brand award is Nov. 30, 2014. For guidelines and submission information, visit www.editorialmanager.com/corr
