Evaluation Procedure

The award jury panel is composed by Ross Baldessarini, Martin Bruene, Giuseppe Craparo, Jos Egger, Fabio Madeddu, Leandro Malloy-Diniz, Donatella Marazziti, Michele Poletti, Adriano Schimmenti, Alfonso Troisi.


During the evaluation procedure even the referees could recommend an article for the award.


Each member of the evaluation committee will choose articles suitable for the competition and discard those unsuitable (e. g., review articles, editorial, research articles not related to clinical procedure etc.), as all articles submitted to CN are judged by referees, but not all will meet the criteria to participate in our award.


A work judged acceptable only by one member of the evaluation committee will be excluded.


A work judged acceptable by two members of the evaluation committee will be discussed.


After this initial stage all works suitable for the award will be assigned a score from 1 to 10, including decimal places, by each evaluator while keeping in mind the aims of the competition.


Each evaluator will assign a score according to his/her own personal knowledge and fields of interest.


The decisions made by the award jury panel are final and cannot be contested at all.
