Paper of the Year Award Recipients

<< Return to awards page

The New England Surgical Society will select annually a “Paper of the Year” for presentation at the Annual Meeting. The paper so designated represents the most impactful paper published five years prior to the meeting with an actively participating NESS member as the first or last author; each such author must have been an actively participating member at the time of publication and still be an actively participating member at the time of the Paper of the Year presentation. Impact is determined by the number of citations of the manuscript in addition to a vote by the Program Committee. Annually, the Recorder of the NESS shall determine the ten most cited papers published five years prior to the Annual Meeting that meet the above guidelines. The Recorder will submit this list for review and vote by the Program Committee. The NESS member/author will be invited and encouraged to give a podium presentation of their work at the annual meeting.
