The editorial team writes, “Across 2022, one person rose above some stiff competition to win our referee of the year award. Kenneth Aizawa consistently demonstrated great generosity with his expertise, providing our editors with speedy and judicious advice and our authors with the sort of insight that brings out the best in their projects. We are tremendously grateful to Ken for his invaluable contribution to our discipline.” The award includes a lifetime honorary membership in the British Society for the Philosophy of Science.
When I last posted about this award, back in 2020, I asked whether other journals had such awards. At the time, none did. Have any been instituted since then? Or any other mechanisms for rewarding referee work?
