As part of IOP Publishing’s commitment to recognise and reward peer review, it has announced its Reviewer Awards winners for 2017.
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 several other excellent reviewers to receive Outstanding Reviewer awards.
Visit https://publishingsupport.iopscience.iop.org/questions/reviewer-awards/ to see the winners listed in full. Of the 27,687 researchers who reviewed for IOP in 2017, 1,327 have received an award.
Winners come from 74 countries, with Tsinghua University, China and Stanford University USA picking up the most awards, with 12 and 11 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!
