As part of our commitment to recognise and reward peer review, IOP Publishing is delighted to announce our Reviewer Awards winners for 2016.
The best reviewers from each journal have been carefully selected by our Editors based on the quality, quantity and timeliness of their reviews.
Each journal has chosen one person to receive the Reviewer of the Year Award, and selected a number of other excellent reviewers to receive Outstanding Reviewer awards.
Please visit the respective journal pages to see the winners listed in full. Of the 27,000 researchers who reviewed for IOP in 2016, 1,408 have received an award.
Winners come from 140 countries, with Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (France) and the University of Cambridge (UK) picking up the most awards, with eight and seven respectively.
Peer review forms the backbone of scholarly communication, providing essential rigour and validation for published papers. IOP Publishing wishes to thank everyone who provides this valuable service, and especially recognise those who contribute exceptional reviews.
Congratulations to all the winners!
