Annual awards by ZooKeys for Most cited articles and Most active editors

19 December 2022

In continuation of one of our favourite journal traditions, we are happy to announce the recipients of the annual awards for most cited articles and most active editors. With this, we invite the ZooKeys community to celebrate its members’ impressive contributions to the creation and dissemination of high-quality scholarly research. 

This year, in order to support and encourage remarkable science going public, we are giving out vouchers for a free publication in ZooKeys to the three lead authors of the best cited papers published in 2019 and the three most active editors in 2021.

Congrats and special ‘Thank you!’ goes to the authors*:

  1. Raquel Asunción Lima-Cordón for "Description of Triatoma huehuetenanguensis sp. n., a potential Chagas disease vector (Hemiptera, Reduviidae, Triatominae)" (52 citations)
  2. Andrea M. Egizi for "A pictorial key to differentiate the recently detected exotic Haemaphysalis longicornis Neumann, 1901 (Acari, Ixodidae) from native congeners in North America" (43 citations)
  3. Frank P. Wesselingh for "Mollusc species from the Pontocaspian region – an expert opinion list" (37 citations)

and the editors**:

  1. Tony Robillard (11 edited manuscripts in 2021)
  2. James Liebherr (11 edited manuscripts in 2021)
  3. Angelica Crottini (10 edited manuscripts in 2021)

Thank you all for being part of the ZooKeys family: we deeply appreciate the individual contributions of every one of you: as readers, authors, editors and reviewers! 

We’ll be back next year, when we’ll award the most cited papers from 2020 and the most active editors from 2022!

May this festive season be blessed with the love and warmth of family and friends. Happy holidays!

*In case the third place is shared by multiple papers, we’re awarding the most recently published one in recognition of its addressing a particularly ‘hot’ topic in zoology.
**If multiple editors share the third place in the ranking, the award is given to the one with the highest all-time record at ZooKeys.
