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 Resources & Methods article (previously known as 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 Resources & Methods articles report a novel technique or method, or a substantial advance of an existing technique or method, or new dataset or resource that will be of broad and significant utility in a particular area of disease research.

All Research and Resources & Methods 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.
