How do competitions work?

Call for Articles on a Defined Topic

Cureus publishing competitions are intended to encourage medical discovery and document clinical experiences – be they positive, negative, or neutral – and foster broader educational outreach through Open Access publication that is free to both authors and readers.

Crowdsourced Review Determines Winners

Winning articles are determined exclusively via peer review panel and community crowdsourced scoring. Neither the sponsoring company, nor Cureus, can determine the competition outcome.

Article Submission Window

Article submissions must adhere to the described “call for articles” and are open to any and all related manufacturer or vendor technologies.

Independent Peer and Editorial Review

As a firewall to ensure objective and credible science, article selection, editorial review, peer review and publication are strictly independent of the sponsoring company.
