CEAS Journals Most Cited Awards

Every year CEAS awards the papers that have been most cited in its journals.

The CEAS Journal Paper Award was established to recognise individuals or a team who have demonstrated the successful dissemination of scientific  knowledge through publication in one of the CEAS journals that their research is of great interest to the community.


The Award takes the form of a certificate and is presented annually in the year of the nomination, by the President of CEAS. The decision on the recipients of the Award is prepared by the Managing Editors of the CEAS Journals together with the CEAS Award Committee and is confirmed by the CEAS Board of Trustees.

Following the meeting of the Awards Committee on May 6th 2022 we are pleased to announce the following winners for 2022 Most Cited Papers Award:
