Road Materials and Pavement Design Best Paper Award

About the prize

The goal of the Road Materials and Pavement Design awards program is to reward researchers, practitioners and/or academicians for outstanding work in the areas of expertise covered by the Journal.

Each year, the Editors will select from amongst the original scientific papers published during the preceding calendar year those considered worthy of special recognition. One or more papers may be recognized.

The Editors-in-Chief will nominate papers among those published each year for the awards program. Each paper identified in the blind review process as an award candidate will be nominated for the RMPD awards program. After careful evaluation of the nominated papers, the award (or awards) will be decided by a majority vote of the Editors present at the annual meeting of the RMPD Board of Editors. No award can be given for a paper having one of the Editors-in-Chief as author.
