Candidates for the Michele Tansella Award will be the first authors of an outstanding publication in the field of epidemiological psychiatry, community psychiatry, or mental health service evaluation.

Eligible papers will have been published in an international peer-reviewed journal in the two years preceding the application for the award. Publications in press can be considered if accompanied by a confirmation of acceptance from the publishing Journal.
