The American Journal of Public Health (AJPH) and Editor-in-Chief developed a process whereby individuals could be recognized for their roles as authors or reviewers of recently published papers.
The first is the AJPH Paper of the Year. This award recognizes a published paper that substantially contributes to our knowledge and understanding of an important public health issue or has advanced a given public health policy or program. The second category is the AJPH Reviewer of the Year which was established to recognize a reviewer who has done the most to strengthen a paper or papers prior to publication.
The articles can be accessed from http://www.ajph.org.
