Call for Nominations! School of Public Health and Institute for Health Research and Policy Research Article Awards — **Expanded Time Span for Eligible Articles**

As part of its efforts to recognize and highlight the excellent research that is being produced in the School of Public Health (inclusive of the Institute for Health Research and Policy), the Committee on Research (COR) has decided to pilot a new process to provide awards for outstanding peer-reviewed journal articles published by faculty, students, postdoctoral trainees, and staff through their SPH and/or IHRP affiliations. The vision is for these awards to be provided annually for publications produced in the preceding year. For this pilot, the time span for eligible publications will be those published in UPDATED *****2018, 2019, or 2020 as well as those that are in press (accepted for publication but not yet published).******* UPDATED

Nominations of articles can be made by anyone inside or outside of the SPH community and self-nominations are welcome. Separate awards will be made in each of the following categories:
• Student Article: SPH student first author
• Early Career Article: assistant professor, postdoc, or research staff person affiliated with SPH or IHRP as first author (or senior author in the case of student co-authors)
• Open: anyone affiliated with SPH or IHRP as first or senior author
• Multidisciplinary Collaboration Article: authors from more than one SPH division or center within IHRP, including one who is first author
• Faculty-Student Collaboration Article: both SPH- or IHRP-affiliated faculty and student authors, one of whom is first author

Nominated publications must list UIC School of Public Health, one of its divisions or units, or the Institute for Health Research and Policy as the primary affiliation of qualifying author(s) for a given award category to be eligible within that category. Articles eligible within more than one category will be considered equally by the committee within each of these categories, with the limitation that no article will receive recognition in more than one category.

Nominations will be accepted through November 15, 2020. The Committee on Research will review nominations and select both an awardee and honorable mention article within each category. Selections will be announced during the spring semester. The author(s) of the articles selected for each award (not including honorable mention) will receive a $250 prize.

Nominations can be submitted via the form found at this link. The nomination form also includes additional information about qualifying criteria for the different award categories.

Please direct any questions to David DuBois, Associate Dean for Research (dldubois@uic.edu) and Pierre Leger, Chair of COR (ptleger@uic.edu).
