1 June 2022 No Comment
Blinded Paper Tips
Provide a title page without names and affiliations of authors.

Use the third person to refer to work the authors have previously undertaken (e.g., replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… Author name has shown [citation]”).

Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation-related identifiers.

Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references, but limit self-references to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.

Remove references to funding sources.

Do not include acknowledgments.

If the paper or poster provides links to data or code used for the analysis (e.g., on GitHub), replace any references to online materials with generic statements such as “data and code for the analysis are available online.”

Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.

Students at any level, as well as 2022 graduates who submit an abstract by June 30, can submit a written paper to be considered for a travel award to the International Conference on Health Policy Statistics.

To be considered, papers must present a solution to or a clear advance in a real-world health policy problem. Thorough and appropriate statistical analyses of health policy problems, issues, or questions pertinent to the goals of the ASA Health Policy Statistics Section  are particularly encouraged. Identification of an important problem, correct application of study design and statistical methods, and clear interpretation of study results with discussion of potential policy impacts will be assessed as part of scoring.

The research proposed or described does not have to be complete, but applicants must submit a draft paper that describes the planned research and nature of the intended health policy application(s).

Applicants must submit the following information by September 15 at 11:59 p.m. ET using the online form:

  • Name (last/surname, middle initial, first)
  • Email address
  • Phone number, including country and area code
  • Actual/expected graduation date (mm-dd-year)
  • Institution affiliation
  • Department
  • US state of the institution (if outside US, enter Non-US)
  • Country of the institution if outside US (if within US, enter N/A)
  • Name and email of the adviser and/or program director (include the adviser’s email in the online submission)
  • Submitted ICHPS 2023 abstract ID for paper or poster
  • Blinded copy of (draft) paper, showing progress toward the proposed research with title page that includes ICHPS abstract ID and title of presentation (see tips)
  • Justification up to 1,200 characters (excluding spaces), with a statement of need for travel assistance and how ICHPS 2023 may affect and benefit the study or research
  • If the applicant is not the first author, provide a description of the applicant’s role in the project and paper or poster, plus the first author’s contact information

All applications will receive full consideration. The program committee hopes to present awards to as many qualified applicants as possible; however, the committee cannot guarantee every applicant will receive an award due to limited funding.

Email meetings@amstat.org with any questions.
