What is the Article of the Year Award?

The Article of the Year Award recognizes and celebrates outstanding articles published the previous year in Hindawi journals. 

Chief Editors were invited to select one original research or review article published in their journal in 2020 which they consider to be exciting and impactful, as well as representative of the research community and its current or future directions.  

As a thank you for their exemplary contribution to scientific research, the authors of each Article of the Year have been awarded an article processing charge (APC) waiver on their next manuscript accepted for publication in the respective journal.
