Journal of Governance and Regulation: the best reviewer award 2017

The editorial team of the Journal of Governance and Regulation keeps a tradition of awarding the certificates for a distinguished review of the papers submitted to the journal in 2017.

We would like to admit the excellent attitude and high professional standards with which all reviewers of the journal and members of the editorial board attended to the task of evaluating research papers submitted to the Journal. On the other hand, in order to facilitate and motivate distinguished devotion to the review task we’ve decided to select and note those experts who had provided the best review reports for the Journal of Governance and Regulation.

We’ve selected such experts based on several criteria, such as responsiveness and punctuality of the review feedback; the quality and size of the review report and recommendations.

Based on the above mentioned criteria we would like to extend special thanks to such experts:

It was not an easy task for us to select only three laureates because as we’ve already mentioned the majority of the reviews were of a very high quality.

Also, all experts who have performed reviews for the Journal during 2017 will receive relevant certificates to appreciate their efforts.

We will definitely continue this tradition next year and will again select most devoted reviewers for the Journal at the end of 2018. We hope that this award will help us to maintain high standards of the review process and quality of the papers on the one hand and on the other hand to note and appreciate the time and professional expertise of our reviewers.

This year the journal moved to an immediate open access publishing model on the rolling basis. This means that the accepted papers will be published online after the successful review and acceptance. Such procedure in most cases will let us reduce the time from the submission to the publication of the paper.

Authors, willing to submit their papers are welcome to follow the instructions.
