1. Make your Kenneth Warren Prize Nominations for 2021

The Kenneth Warren Prize has been established with individual and institutional donations (see cochrane.org for details) to celebrate and recognise Ken's interests. It was awarded for the first time at the 8th Cochrane Colloquium in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2000. The Prize is awarded annually to the principal author who is a national living in a developing country of a published Cochrane Review which is judged to be both of high methodological quality and relevant to health problems in developing countries.

The Prize for any given year is open to the principal author of a review published on the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in the Cochrane Library, in Issues 4-12 of the previous year and issues 1-3 of the current year. In response to the call for nominations, authors may self-select their review(s) based on quality and relevance, and also Cochrane Review Group editorial teams and other Cochrane members may nominate specific reviews.

The judgement is made by a panel comprised entirely of nationals of developing countries. The Prize recipient receives a certificate and US $1000.

The winners of the 2021 prize will be announced in a virtual ceremony later in the year.
 
Everyone in the Cochrane Community is welcome to submit nominations. You may nominate multiple people but each nomination must be submitted through a separate form. You have until the 31 October 2021 to make your nominations.
