The Taylor & Francis Awards

The Taylor & Francis Awards are offered two the Best Case Report and the Best Scientific Presentation.

Since 2008 Taylor & Francis offers two awards for the Best Case Report and the Best Scientific Presentation.

Any original submission to the meeting of a) a scientific presentation of b) a single case report or a small number of cases, via the usual abstract submission process can be considered for these awards, except for invited keynote or plenary lectures and those that have already been short-listed for the Young Investigator's Award. There are no restrictions on age and authors do not have to be EAPCCT members.

All original submitted abstracts are subject to a blinded reviewing process involving at least eight separate reviewers. Accepted abstracts are short-listed on the basis of the eligibility criteria and overall mean quality scores provided by teh reviewers. Short listed authors are informed in advance of the meeting. The winners are chosen by a panel of at least three judges. Their decision will be final.

Winners will be awarded a certificate, expedited publication of their presentation in Clincal Toxicology (subject to acceptance via the usual manuscript review process) and 500 USD.
