In 1996 the Journal of Complexity instituted an annual Best Paper Award to celebrate outstanding research. Each year a two person selection committee is chosen by the Editor-in-Chief and the senior Editors (Currently Erich Novak, Ian Sloan, Joseph Traub (EIC), and Henryk Wozniakowski).

A list of all the committees and the chosen papers and authors may be found on the Journal's homepage.

Application Process:
A selection committee, which changes annually, choses the best paper out of all of the papers published in a given year in the Journal of Complexity. Every author who has a paper published in the journal is a candidate for the award in a given year.
