ROI Publication Award
Eligibility and Criteria
The ROI Publication Award recognizes the best scientific work in one of the priority areas for radiation oncology that form the ROI’s research agenda: communication, safety and quality, toxicity management, comparative effectiveness and value. Using either qualitative or quantitative techniques, articles may present, analyze, and comment on new data, or may synthesize and analyze data that have already been collected.
- An article or a collection of articles resulting from a single study in one of ROI’s priority research areas are eligible for the award.
- Special consideration will be given to articles that produce new insights and have the potential to change current thinking.
- Articles will be scored on importance of key issue/focus, advancement of knowledge in the field, and new insights.
- Each manuscript is evaluated by at least two qualified ROI reviewers and then considered by the ROI Research Committee and the ROI Board of Trustees to determine the award winner.
- No individual who is an author on a manuscript submitted for consideration may participate in the selection process for determining the ROI Publication Award.
- Manuscripts from the same institution or organization will not be evaluated by members of the ROI Board of Trustees or the ROI Research Committee from that institution or organization.
