The award for researchers, chosen by researchers, is back again.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Article of the Year Award 2022, back for the third year running following the success of our previous awards. This year, Chief Editors have chosen articles from 50 journals across our portfolio on topics ranging from bacterial taxonomy to predator-prey dynamics and low-carbon supply chains.

What is the Article of the Year Award?

Each year, we ask our Chief Editors to choose a research or review article published in their journal the previous year that they feel is impactful and representative of their journal’s research community. As thought leaders in their respective fields, Chief Editors select articles that represent a key indicator of the current and future directions of the journal and its research community.

The Article of the Year Award brings well-deserved attention to high-quality content and increases visibility for important topics, while also celebrating our authors.

In recognition of their valuable contribution to the scientific community, the authors of the winning articles are awarded an article processing charge (APC) waiver on their next manuscript accepted for publication in a Hindawi journal.

Celebrating sound science

Although real-world impact is indeed a consideration for Chief Editors, ultimately the most important and unifying characteristics of the selected Articles of the Year are scientific validity and technical accuracy.

High standards of research integrity and publication ethics are central to our mission as a publisher and our readers should be confident in trusting that published research has followed best practice and is an honest reflection of the science. If you want your article to be considered for publication, make sure you adhere to scientific best practice and read our tips on avoiding unethical publishing activity.
