Announcement of the Awards of JSE Outstanding Papers (2014 and 2015)

Journal of Systematics and Evolution (JSE) recently established two award categories: (1) JSE Outstanding Papers, and (2) JSE Outstanding Papers by Young Investigators (first author receiving doctoral degree within seven years). In the July issue of 2015, 20 most cited papers published in JSE in the period from 2008 to 2013 were selected to receive the first set of awards of JSE Outstanding Papers. We herein announce the recipients of the awards for 2014 and 2015. The papers were nominated by JSE Editors and were selected largely based on the citations per year (citation data from Thomson Reuters Web of Science, accessed 21 April 2016). Winners of the JSE Outstanding Papers will be presented with a certificate and awarded with $800; and winners of the JSE Outstanding Papers by Young Investigators will receive a certificate and a prize of $500.
