Announcement of the Awards of JSE Outstanding Papers (2008-2013)

Journal of Systematics and Evolution has established awards of JSE Outstanding Papers!

In the period of 2008 to 2013, JSE published a total of 370 papers, with many outstanding studies covering different areas of systematics and evolution. Here we announce the 20 most cited papers published in JSE in this period as the first set of awards of JSE Outstanding Papers. These papers were selected based on their average number of citations per year (citation data from Thomson Reuters Web of Science, accessed 30 April 2015) and are listed below in the order of high to low in average citations (also see the references cited).  Each winner will be presented with a certificate and awarded with $800.

Starting in 2015, we would announce two awards of JSE Outstanding Papers ($800 each award) each year to recognize the papers published in JSE with important impact in systematics and evolution; we would also select two outstanding papers for the JSE Young Investigators¡¯ Awards each year. First authors who received their Ph.D. degree within seven years are eligible for the JSE Young Investigators¡¯ Awards ($500 each award).

Please find more detailed information of the awards in the Editorial of the July issue.
