ISBD Best Paper of the Year Award
The International Society for Bipolar Disorders recognizes and promotes the most highly regarded manuscripts published in our journal, Bipolar Disorders, each year with the Best Paper of the Year Award. First presented in 2015, the Award reflects the exceptional work of the winners as well as the quality and reputation of the journal.
In a collaboration between ISBD and Bipolar Disorders, papers are evaluated by a panel of judges selected by the leadership of both organizations under the auspices of the ISBD Awards Committee. The authors of the top three manuscripts—a winner and two runners up—are celebrated during the ISBD Awards Ceremony on the opening day of our annual conference.
ISBD actively promotes the award-winning manuscripts to its members and chapters as part of our dedication to offering high quality educational content. In an effort to increase exposure for these superb works, ISBD has arranged for the articles to be made freely available on the John Wiley and Sons website for up to one year from the Awards presentation.
