The American Physical Society (APS) has honored Prof. Dr. Matthias Bartelmann as Outstanding Referee for quality, number and timeliness of his reports.
The Outstanding Referee program annually recognizes approximately 150 of the active referees from about 30 countries for their invaluable work with this lifetime award. The selection is made from 30 years of records on over 57,000 referees who have been called upon to review manuscripts. The basis for the Outstanding Referees selection takes into account the quality, number and timeliness of a referee’s reports, without regard for membership in the APS, country of origin, or field of research.
All recipients of this distinction have been sent a lapel pin and a certificate to commemorate their achievement. The efforts of these individuals not only keep the standards of the journals at a high level, but also help authors improve the quality and readability of their articles—even those that are not published by APS.
Matthias Bartelmann is to be congratulated and thanked for his outstanding service to the physics community!
