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 recognized during the ISBD Awards Ceremony at our annual conference.
