Candidates can choose scholarship that span their entire academic career, but   recommend that a significant portion of the scholarship chosen reflects their   current work (e.g. since their last promotion)

Summaries of each piece should be 2‐5 sentences explaining the impact and  significance of the work as well as their contribution to the publication

Expectation that the majority of scholarship is first or senior author, and if  middle author that their intellectual contribution is well defined in the  summary of the work

To be selected as one of the 10‐best scholarship, the materials need to be  accessible to the whole community (can not use materials that are only  accessible to HMS faculty)

Electronic copies of materials are preferred, but in cases where this is not  possible we need 3 copies of each hard copy material (such as a textbook or a  CD)
