AAV Student and House Officer Manuscript Competitions for 2013
Jan 25, 2013: The Association of Avian Veterinarians is pleased to announce the annual Student and House Officer (formerly Resident) Manuscript Competitions for the year 2013.
The protocol and awards for each category are identical with the exception that the Resident Manuscript Competition is now open to all House Officers. With this change, veterinary interns may now also submit manuscripts for consideration in this category.
Manuscripts may consist of a case report (new or unusual disease, or new diagnostic or therapeutic modality), retrospective or prospective clinical study, or review article involving any avian species except commercial poultry. Authors must follow guidelines for submission as outlined in the Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery.
Criteria for selection of the manuscript for each AAV award shall be based on clinical relevance, scientific validity, contribution to avian medicine, utilization of a multi-discipline approach to problem-solving, and adherence to guideline requirements.
The student and house officer submitting the selected manuscripts will be expected to present their papers at the 2013 AAV Conference and Expo in Jacksonville, FL, USA, August 3-7, 2013. They will each receive complimentary main conference registration, a plaque commemorating the occasion and a check for $500.00 to help defray travel expenses.
Manuscript and photos must be received by May 7, 2013. Email to email@example.com.
If chosen to present at the conference, the authors will be requested to submit abstracts for publication in the Proceedings. The full paper will not be published so that the author may submit their original complete work to the Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery.
