Arthroscopy Annual Awards: The “Old Normal”

      Abstract

      With sincere thanks to the Arthroscopy Association of North America Education Foundation for their support, we are pleased to announce the Annual Awards for our best Clinical Research, Basic Science Research, Resident/Fellow Research, and Systematic Reviews published in 2020, as well as the Most Downloaded and Most Cited papers published 5 years ago. We proudly introduce new members of our editorial team, and your editors update their disclosures of potential conflicts of interest.
      We begin the new year with a sense of optimism, and what better way to start than by celebrating our award-winning authors and their research. The term “new normal” has become too much a part of our lexicon of late, and our celebrations have been postponed or muted. Thus, as we begin this new year, 2021, and as we commence a new volume of Arthroscopy, the opportunity to announce our Annual Awards represents a much-needed opportunity to recognize and praise the pursuit and achievement of excellence. While acclaiming the best of our published research, as well as recognizing the continued dedication of our authors, reviewers, editorial team, and readers, we revel in the collective and altruistic goal of making life better for patients, advancing science, and always striving to improve our skills, knowledge, and outcomes.
      The odds of having one’s original scientific research submission accepted for publication in Arthroscopy are long.
      • Brand J.C.
      • Rossi M.J.
      • Lubowitz J.H.
      Arthroscopy announces annual awards.
      The odds of winning a research prize are more so, and this year, our research excellence committee, to a member, noted the especially high quality of the publications under consideration; choosing the winners was difficult. We thus congratulate all our winners and runners-up.
      Before coming to the awards, this being January, we update our masthead and introduce an expanded editorial board, a new member of our social media board dedicated to visual abstracts, a new Visual Abstracts Editor, a new Infographics Editor, and a new Associate Editor. Also, your editors update their International Committee of Medical Journal Editors Forms for Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest. The disclosures, in a manner similar to the forms of all authors of published articles, are available for review in the online version of this editorial as Supplemental Material.
      And so, onward and upward with our awards!

      A tip of the hat is insufficient. Three cheers to all of the celebrated authors. We acknowledge the efforts of our Research Excellence Committee: Associate Editors Josh Harris, Nikolaos Paschos, Erik Hohmann, Statistical Associate Editor Mark Cote, and Assistant-Editor-in-Chief Jeff Brand. As ever, the committee conducted the selection process in a blinded manner and recused themselves from voting for their own research. All winners will receive $1,000 (thanks to the generosity of the AANA Education Foundation), and hard-earned, everlasting glory.
