A Call for Papers On Original Research


ASSAY and Drug Development Technologies is proud to announce the First Annual Competition for the best Original Research paper by a postdoc from an accredited fellowship training program in any subspecialty related to the scope of our Journal. All current postdocs are encouraged to participate. The Award carries with it a $2,500 USD prize and a certificate of scholarly excellence issued by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

The submission deadline for all papers is June 2, 2014.

Manuscripts should be submitted through our online submission system and be accompanied by a letter from the training program director verifying that the principal author is a current trainee at the time of the submission and that this work was performed during the training period. The cover letter should include reference to your grant funding source as well as a statement from the trainee that they wish this manuscript to be entered into the fellow competition. Papers should follow all Journal manuscript submission requirements as stated in the instructions for authors. Manuscripts should be submitted under the “2014 Fellows Competition” manuscript type. You may submit your manuscript online here.

All manuscripts will undergo expert review and be considered for publication in our Journal. Accepted manuscripts will be published in a timely manner. Research manuscripts must not have been previously published in print or electronic format and must not have been submitted to any other journal during consideration. An award committee has been convened to make recommendations for the selection of the 2014 winner. The award will be announced in the March 2015 issue of ASSAY and Drug Development Technologies.

Papers will be judged on originality, science, presentation, grant support, and interest to our Journal readership. For any additional questions or concerns regarding this competition, please contact Susan Jensen at sjensen@liebertpub.com.
