The American Physical Society (APS) has named David Snoke one of the 146 Outstanding Referees for exceptional help in assessing manuscripts for publication in the Physical Review journals.
The selection this year was made from 30 years of records on over 69,000 referees who have been called upon to review manuscripts, including more than 37,200 that were submitted in 2015.
The 2016 honorees come from 27 different counties. The Outstanding Referees program annually recognizes approximately 150 of the currently active referees. Like Fellowship in the APS and other organizations, this is a lifetime award.
