Distinguished EPJ Referees

Distinguished EPJ Referee badge

The EPJ editors and publishers are well aware of the central role of referees in maintaining the quality of scientific publishing. As a sign of appreciation they have selected a list of “distinguished EPJ referees” who have provided exceptionally valuable service to the EPJ journals.

The distinguished EPJ referees are selected by the Editors based on the quality, number, and timeliness of their reports. Their names will be published yearly on the EPJ web portal and they will receive:

  • a certificate signed by the Editors-in-Chief of the corresponding EPJ journal and by the chair of the EPJ Steering Committee
  • a personalized electronic badge designed for the use of homepages and similar
  • a complimentary book of their choice from the publishers' catalogue

The EPJ Steering Committee, all EPJ Editors and Editorial Office staff would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and express their deep appreciation for the invaluable contribution and support provided by these referees to the European Physical Journal.
