As a reward for their efforts, each author group will be awarded $5,000. (We’ll be reaching out to the corresponding author of each article to arrange for award delivery.)
As is the case with all of our publishing competitions, please keep in mind that the above scores represent only those scores submitted during the competition scoring period.
We’d like to extend a big thank you to the Cureus community for their efforts in reading and scoring competition articles over the past few months. Without you, this competition would not be possible.
And remember – even though the competition is over, you can still access and score all of the articles. Thanks for your support!
