The Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science (IAPHS) has launched The Milbank Quarterly Early Career Award in Population Health that recognizes significant contributions to population health science by individuals early in their careers. The award emphasizes contributions that integrate insights from multiple disciplines contributing distinct bodies of knowledge to the challenge of understanding and addressing population health issues. For the 2019 award, candidates will have received their PhD, MD, or comparable graduate degree no earlier than May of 2009. The deadline for the award—to be presented at IAPHS’ annual meeting in October—is March 22.
Outstanding Reviewer Award
Peer review is a critical but underappreciated labor that ensures that high-quality research is identified and communicated well. The Milbank Quarterly is pleased to announce the launch of a new annual award honoring three reviewers who have provided high quality, thoughtful, and timely comments for the Quarterly, as determined by the editors. Recipients will be awarded an honorarium and will be recognized in the journal. The period of consideration for the first award is October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019. All reviewers during the time period will be considered. Winners will be announced in December 2019. We plan to repeat this each year thereafter.
