2018 Resident Writer’s Award Information
The 2018 Resident Writer’s Award competition is sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. Orthopedic residents are invited to submit original studies, review papers, or case reports for publication. Papers published in 2018 will be judged by The American Journal of Orthopedics Editorial Board. Honoraria will be presented to the winners at the 2019 AAOS annual meeting.
- $1,500 for the First-Place Award
- $1,000 for the Second-Place Award
- $500 for the Third-Place Award
To quality for consideration, papers must have the resident as the first-listed author and must be accepted through the journal’s standard blinded-review process. Papers submitted in 2018 but not published until 2019 will automatically qualify for the 2019 competition. Manuscripts should be prepared according to our Information for the Authors and submitted via our online submission system, Editorial Manager®, at www.editorialmanager.com/AmJOrthop.
