JPSJ Outstanding Referees

The JPSJ Outstanding Referee Program is instituted starting in 2015 to recognize physicists who have been very helpful in article publications in Journal of the Physical Society of Japan (JPSJ). This program recognizes about ten of currently active referees and editors every year. The outstanding referees are selected by the JPSJ editorial board based on various aspects of contributions as a reviewer as well as an editor based on the records kept since year 2004. Individuals with current or very recent direct connections to JPSJ, such as editor-in-chief and full-time editors, are excluded.
