We congratulate the awardees!

Our process for selecting the outstanding reviewer and outstanding paper award winners is as follows: Each summer we seek nominations for the awards by editorial board members and guest editors. The editorial board then casts a vote on the nominations, and the nomination with most votes receives the award. For Outstanding Reviewer, all current and past reviewers of the journal are eligible. For Outstanding Paper, all papers published within the previous 12 months, plus all papers not yet published but accepted and final version received, are eligible. The exceptional guest editors award winners were selected by the editors-in-chief for their exceptional conduct of a special issue along all relevant dimensions.
