Systematic reviews provide critical high-level evidence to influence practice. BJSM prioritises publication of quality SRs.
The winning papers are enjoyable to read and their messages easily incorporated into clinical practice. The selected papers adhered carefully to PRISMA guidelines. The results were skilfully analysed and synthesised into a clinically relevant discussion which links well to the study objectives. A reviewer independent of BJSM editors chose the winners after an iterative evaluation of BJSM systematic reviews published between July 2013-June 2014.
1st equal (£500) prize winners:
- Christian Barton, Vivek Balachandar, Simon Lack, Dylan Morrissey
- Jeppe Bo Lauersen, Ditte Marie Bertelsen, Lars Bo Andersen
- Lot Verburgh, Marsh Königs, Erik J A Scherder, Jaap Oosterlaan
