ABOUT CUREUS PUBLISHING COMPETITIONS

ENCOURAGING MEDICAL DISCOVERY


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.

ARTICLE SUBMISSION


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

OBJECTIVE AND CREDIBLE SCIENCE


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

WINNERS BY PEER REVIEW


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

STIPULATIONS

All clinical studies must be compliant with applicable regulatory, ethics / IRB, and other rules governing protection of human subjects.

All non-clinical studies must be compliant with applicable AAUC, AAALAC, and other related regulations.

This program is not intended to promote or otherwise encourage unapproved, un-cleared use of products or any product for unapproved new use.
