Top Reviewer Awards

The editorial team of JHTM is grateful to all individuals who have reviewed for the journal in 2022.

From those individuals, the JHTM editorial team has selected three reviewers to receive the JHTM 2022 Top Reviewer Award. This decision has been based both on the number and speed of the reviews, as well as the quality of the reviews provided by these individuals. As JHTM continues to receive an increasing number of submissions, it is no surprising that we need and use more reviewers. In this context, we need to recognise the efforts by many more individuals providing their valuable time to review for the JHTM

The recipients of the 2022 Best Reviewer Award are:

  • Jun Wen, Edith Cowan University, Australia
  • Yang Shaohua, Anhui University of Technology
  • Al-Ansi Amr, Macau University of Science and Technology

Congratulations to all the award-winning authors and reviewers! Their international profile also reflects the internationalisation and openness of the JHTM.
