Washington, DC (USA) — The SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology editors and editorial boards, in partnership with SAGE Publishing, announced their annual achievement award winners at a special reception at the SLAS 2019 International Conference and Exhibition in February. Awards are given to the most popular articles based on the number of readers and number of author citations, as well as to three volunteers from each publication who went above and beyond their reviewer duties in the last year.

“Each year, we have the great privilege of recognizing outstanding contributions to SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology via our Reader’s Choice (most downloaded articles by readers) and Authors Choice (most citations) Awards,” said Robert Campbell, Ph.D., and editor of SLAS Discovery. “SLAS congratulates each of the 2019 Readers Choice and Authors Choice winners along with the Reviewer Excellence Award winners for their impactful, innovative and educational submissions to both journals.”
