The American Physical Society (APS) has named PQI faculty David Snoke one of the 146 Outstanding Referees of 2016 for exceptional help in assessing manuscripts for publication in the Physical Review journals.

The Outstanding Referee program was instituted in 2008 to recognize scientists who have been exceptionally helpful in assessing manuscripts for publication in the APS journals. By means of the program, APS expresses its appreciation to all referees, whose efforts in peer review not only keep the standards of the journals at a high level, but in many cases also help authors to improve the quality and readability of their articles – even those that are not published by APS.

The highly selective Outstanding Referee program annually recognizes about 150 of the roughly 60,000 currently active referees. 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.

Like Fellowship in the APS and other organizations, this is a lifetime award, and the Outstanding Referees are to be congratulated and thanked for their outstanding service to the physics community.
