We are pleased to announce the launch of the BioMed Central Research Awards for 2007. These awards recognise excellence in research that has

Central’s journals during 2007 is eligible for nomination. The sooner you submit your best research article to one of BioMed Central’s 170+ journals, the more chance you have of being published in time to qualify for the award. You cannot nominate your own research, but a colleague (excluding co-authors) can by completing the nomination form provided.
Nominations are now being accepted and will close 21st December 2007. The winning articles will be selected by a panel of BioMed Central’s editorial team members and external experts in biology and medicine. The winners will be announced at
the BioMed Central Research Awards dinner in early March 2008.
Central Research Awards began last year and were a great success. The
winners were announced at the BioMed Central Open
Access Colloquium in February 2007, at the Royal College
of Physicians, London. Read about last year’s winners.
