The January 2006 issue of Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics publishes the prize-winning papers from the International Conference on Chiropractic Research (ICCR) held at the Sydney Convention Centre, Australia, from June 16 to 18, 2005. This conference was jointly sponsored and administered by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) and the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research (FCER) and was held as part of WFC's 8th Biennial Congress.
This conference was the inaugural ICCR, and it combined two events that were previously held separately. The first is the WFC's original research symposium and competition, which has been held every 2 years since 1991 as part of WFC's Biennial Congress. In recent times, the competition has had four prizes totaling US$15,000 generously sponsored by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Prize-winning papers have traditionally been published in Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, in January or February of the year following the WFC Congress. Past prize winners are listed in Table 1.
