      The American Journal of Preventive Medicine is pleased to announce the selection of the 2021 Article of the Year, “Associations Between Governor Political Affiliation and COVID-19 Cases, Deaths, and Testing in the U.S.” by Dr. Brian Neelon and colleagues.

      Neelon B, Mutiso F, Mueller NT, Pearce JL, Benjamin-Neelon SE. Associations between governor political affiliation and COVID-19 cases, deaths, and testing in the U.S. Am J Prev Med. 2021;61(1):115–119. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.amepre.2021.01.034.

      The Article of the Year is selected by a committee comprising AJPM editors and governing board representatives from the journal's 2 sponsoring professional societies, the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research and the American College of Preventive Medicine. The AJPM Article of the Year designation recognizes outstanding research that advances the fields of preventive medicine and population health and includes a $1,500 award. Because only articles published in 2021 were considered, there was insufficient time for extensive citation by researchers, so selection criteria were chiefly based on an evaluation of metrics related to online engagement (e.g., mentions in mainstream media outlets and on social media and article downloads on the journal website) in addition to the paper's scientific rigor and potential contribution to the discipline.
