Applications Invited for:
Awards for Papers Published in 2012 in the International Journal of Eating Disorders (IJED)
The International Journal of Eating Disorders (IJED) and Wiley invite applications for two awards, each in the amount of $2,500, for outstanding IJED papers that have appeared in print in 2012. Each award is described below. Please note that equal consideration will be given to empirical and non-empirical (e.g., review) papers in both categories.
Awardees will be notified in late March 2013. Awards will be presented during the Awards Ceremony of the International Conference on Eating Disorders on May 4, 2013, in Montréal, Canada.
AWARD CATEGORY ONE: Best Paper by an Early Career Investigator
Candidates must be a) current “trainee” (students,
interns or residents), or b) within 5 years of receiving their most
Nominations (including self-nominations) should be sent to Dr. Howard Steiger, IJED Associate Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the complete citation of the article, including names of any co-authors. Documentation from the relevant official or institution certifying trainee status or the date of the applicant’s graduation from the Academic Program should also be sent to Dr. Steiger via email attachment. This certification must be received prior to the Committee’s review of candidate papers. Past Awardees are not eligible for additional consideration. We are truly delighted to be able to offer this special support to early career investigators.
AWARD CATEGORY TWO: Outstanding Scientific Contribution
Nominations (including self-nominations) should be submitted to the
Editor directly at email@example.com and

Early Career Award) are ineligible for this award.
