Last year we embarked on an exciting initiative, exclusive to our members, to fund the development of 8 short animations highlighting publications by our members in 2019. The idea was proposed as a member benefit by our Education Committee and supported by the Board as a good way to showcase our members’ work. And now, we are delighted to announce the results!
What was the process?
All ISPAH members were invited to submit abstracts of their manuscripts that were published in 2019, where they were either the first or senior author. Three reviewers scored each abstract (blind review) in order to select the top 8 papers.
We received 22 strong applications. All were blind reviewed by 3 independent reviewers and scored according to clarity, quality, rigour, significance and importance to the field of physical activity and public health.
Once selected, the winning authors provided a short script to highlight the key messages from their research. The animations were produced by Jennifer Duncan in consultation with the authors and the ISPAH Education Committee.
And the selected ISPAH Shorts are…
