EFIS-IL Most Cited Paper Awards

The EFIS Board, together with one of the Federation’s official journals, Immunology Letters (IL), established these prizes to acknowledge the Original Article and Review that were the most often cited over the past seven years following their publication in IL. Traditionally, these prizes were awarded at the triennial European Congress of Immunology (ECI).

 

In a break from past award sessions, three (3) prizes will now be awarded in each category to the first, second and third most-cited Articles and Reviews appearing in IL between January 1, 2011 and 15 March, 2018.
