Every two years we ask our readers to nominate papers from the Annals of Work Exposures and Health that they have found particularly interesting or useful, or in other ways worthy of consideration. The papers must have been published in the previous two years.
Any reader may nominate up to three papers, except for someone working in the organisation of one of the authors, or with a close personal link with an author. A nomination should be accompanied by up to 150 words drawing attention to the paper’s strong points, and by the name and address of the nominator (which will not be disclosed to the panel).
The winner is chosen from the list of nominated papers by a panel of the Editorial Board and three prominent members of BOHS, who report to the BOHS Board.
