Editors Award


In 2001 it was decided to initiate an Editors' Award for outstanding papers, or as the Editors-in-Chief put it: " Occasionally ... we see a paper that is ground-breaking, that introduces a new approach, that debunks an old myth, or that just does everything very well." They further wrote: "The choice of paper will sometimes be difficult.  We shall hope we do not offend those who wrote excellent papers that did not catch our eye.  The intention is to give one example of the kinds of paper that the Editors especially welcome.
