Nominations for Garfield Award Due June 22
Research!America is proud to announce a call for nominations for the 11th annual Garfield Economic Impact Award. Established in 2002, this annual award recognizes outstanding research demonstrating the economic impact of medical and health research, including research-based innovations in the medical or health care delivery arena. Founding support for the Garfield Award was provided by the Eugene Garfield Foundation. A grant from Merck & Co., Inc. in 2010 supports the Garfield Award and the tradition of extending an honorarium of $10,000 for the winning publication. The 2012 Garfield Award will be presented in the month of November, in Washington, DC.
The Garfield Award committee will consider nominations received by the close of business June 22, 2012.
Nominations should include:
- A copy of the publication or thesis.
- A 200-word statement summarizing the reasons the work should be recognized, particularly describing how the work illustrates the economic impact of medical and health research, including research-based innovations in the medical or health care delivery arena.
- To be considered, the work must have been published or accepted for publication between January 1, 2006, and December 31, 2011.
To promote growth of the field, the Garfield Award committee encourages, but does not require, that nominated work be conducted by early-career researchers. Self-nominations are welcome.

Garfield Award Committee, Research!America, 1101 King Street, Suite 520, Alexandria, VA 22314-2960
