Outstanding Reviewer Award 2018
To acknowledge our reviewers who so generously give their time to review papers submitted to Atmosphere, on behalf of the Associate Editor, Prof. Dr. Anthony R. Lupo, we plan to dedicate an award to reviewers who prove their dedication, professionalism, and timeliness in reviewing manuscripts for Atmosphere.
Although anonymous peer-review is one of the cornerstones of publishing high quality comprehensive manuscripts for the advancement of science and engineering research, it is also often one of the most underappreciated of the many requests and demands made on subject experts. It is for this reason that the Atmosphere editorial office is extremely grateful to reviewers for the time, energy and dedication that they freely provide to support their peers.
What are the pre-requisites to be eligible for this award?
- All the reviewers for Atmosphere in 2018 will automatically be included.
What awards will be granted?
- Five awardees will be chosen this year.
The top two winners will receive:
- 500 Swiss Francs (CHF)
- A certificate
Three additional winners will receive:
- A certificate
When will the winners be announced?
- The winners will be announced early in 2019 on the journal website.
How to be included for a chance to win?
- For those of you who have not yet reviewed papers for the journal but would like to do so, you can easily register as a reviewer at: https://susy.mdpi.com/volunteer/profile/edit
