Research Awards

The SICOT Research Award Programme comprises three awards of USD 2,000 each. The winners are chosen based on scientific merit by the Research Academy with one winner in each of the following areas:

1) Clinical Science;

2) Basic Science;

3) Young Investigator (main author must be less than 40 years old). 

Papers submitted for the contest must be complete papers on original work, not previously published or submitted for publication. The submitted manuscripts may be considered for publication in International Orthopaedics following the regular peer-review process.

The awards are open to both SICOT and non-SICOT members.

One of the authors of each winning manuscript must be prepared, at her/his own expense, to come and present the paper at the SICOT Orthopaedic World Congress.


Due to the COVID-19 crisis, there will be no Research Awards granted in 2020.
