DMM outstanding paper prize
Each year, DMM awards two £1000 prizes to the first authors (or co-first authors, where there is joint authorship) of the Research article and Resource article that are judged by the journal’s editors to be the most outstanding in the journal that year.
DMM established a separate award for Resource articles in 2022, reflecting their increasing importance in advancing disease research. DMM Resource articles report a novel technique or approach, or a substantial advance of an existing technique or approach, or new dataset or resource that will be of broad and significant utility in a particular area of disease research.
All Research and Resource articles are eligible for consideration. The recipient of the award will be the author (non-faculty) who made the most significant contribution to the article (most usually the first author). The Editorial Office will contact the corresponding authors of the winning papers to establish who should receive the prize.
The shortlist of selected papers and overall winners will be announced in DMM, along with a short profile of the winning authors.
