Elsevier events recognizing reviewers
We highlight some of the 2013 campaigns designed to thank reviewers for all their hard work
By Ursula Culligan Posted on 1 December 2013
Every year our STM Journals Marketing department organizes many events and campaigns thanking and recognizing the hard work of our reviewers. Some campaigns are across large numbers of journals whilst others are journal specific. As we reach the end of 2013, our marketing department would like to share a few of the campaigns and events they carried out this year.
Computers & Chemical Engineering reviewer reception
AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers)
Annual Meeting, San Francisco
6 November 2013
Around 100 ' Top Reviewers' for the journal Computers & Chemical Engineering were invited to a reception, where the winners of the 2012 Best Paper were presented with an award and authors and reviewers were publicly thanked for their contribution to the journal. The venue was a cocktail bar themed after the traditional San Francisco "speakeasy" and guests needed a password to gain access to the "secret library" where the reception was taking place. Over 50 guests attended, including more than 20 Top Reviewers. All the 'Top Reviewers', whether or not they attended the reception, also received a certificate.

their hard work and dedication. The criteria set for being a 'top
