Resident Research Essay Contest Guidelines

Deadline for receipt of entries: April 10, 2014


  1. The entrant must be a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists at the time of submission. Entries submitted by a principal author who is not an ASA member will not be reviewed. Any co-entrant(s) is not required to be a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

  2. The work reported should have been completed during residency or research fellowship training. Research performed as a student may be considered.

  3. Papers should be submitted during or within one year following completion of the training.

  4. A previous entry or award does not preclude eligibility.

 Submission of Entry

  1. A letter signed by the entrant stating that the research and writing was predominantly done by the entrant must accompany the submission. Only one submission will be accepted per entrant.

  2. A letter from the Residency Program Director confirming eligibility for the entrant and, if applicable, co-entrant(s) must accompany the submission.

  3. The original entry should follow the format (title, page, abstract, text, references) of the journal Anesthesiology. Collaborators and co-authors should be listed on the title page. Figures need not be finished photographic prints but should reproduce legibly. Entries which do not follow this format will be returned.

  4. A limit of 25 double-spaced pages (excluding letters of verification but including all figures, tables and references) will be enforced; manuscripts that exceed the page limit will not be reviewed.

  5. Concurrent online submission of an abstract for presentation at the ASA annual meeting is a requirement. The submission should be prepared in accordance with the rules and deadlines for submission of a regular abstract submission, and must be submitted independently here.

  6. The work should not have been presented, published or submitted to any other national meeting, national residents’ essay contest or journal prior to this submission. The essay can be presented to local residents’ essay contests (i.e., Midwest or Western Residents’ Essay Contest).

  7. Manuscripts should be sent electronically to the chair of the Committee on Research, Evan Kharasch, M.D., Ph.D., at kharasch@wustl.edu by April 10, 2014.
