Lawrence G. Raisz, M.D. founded the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (JBMR®) and served as Editor-in-Chief for the first 10 years of the journal's existence. Under his leadership, the JBMR® expanded from a bimonthly to a monthly publication, began publishing the best science in bone and mineral metabolism and emerged as the highest-ranked journal in its field. Marc K. Drezner, M.D., built upon Dr. Raisz' success by maintaining the Journal's #1 ranking, expanding its international reach, instituting self-publishing and establishing a fully electronic presence for the journal.
The ASBMR Raisz-Drezner Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (JBMR®) First Paper Awards honor first authors of meritorious scientific publications published in the JBMR®. To qualify for consideration, a paper must be the first JBMR® scientific paper in which the first author appears as first author. Among qualifying submissions that reach final acceptance, one such paper will be determined by the review committee to be of highest merit. The award includes a $1,000 honorarium and a plaque, both of which are presented to the recipient at the ASBMR Annual Meeting.
