The Special Interest Group on Health (SIG-Health) of the Association for Information Systems will award its annual Best Published Paper Award in 2024. There will be a Junior and a Senior award category when at least 5 submissions are received in each category. For each category, there will be a Best Paper Award and Meritorious Mention.

Submissions are due on July 25, 2024 with the announcements of winners following soon after. At the time of the award presentation, winners need to be a AIS SIGHealth Member (only $10 for AIS members!) and be present at the AMCIS 2024 or the ICIS 2024 SIGHealth Business Meeting to receive the award.

To be eligible as a Junior Researcher, you need to have been a student at the time the paper was published. This has to be reflected in your affiliation. Everyone else will be considered to be a Senior Researcher.

We will accept journal and conference papers in English that were published and in print in 2023. They need to contain original research. Papers that are editorial comments, notes, or research-in-progress are not eligible. Conference posters are not eligible. The paper needs to have been peer-reviewed. Only one paper per first author will be accepted.

Instructions

To submit a paper, create a single pdf file that contains a cover page with your contact information, the paper’s DOI or publication URL, an explanation of you status if not clear from the paper, and the published version of the paper. Do not submit proofs or drafts.
