Editors' Foreword

The Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) as a peer-reviewed journal greatly depends on volunteer peer reviews. Reviewers devote much time to going through new material, catching mistakes, offering suggestions, and improving the manuscript’s readability; however, their efforts remain all too often a thankless task. The review process is the longest lead item in getting a manuscript to print. The JEEG Editorial Board is always trying to keep the quality of reviews high and, at the same time, reduce reviewing time, which can indirectly affect the journal’s impact factor.

The Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) is proud to offer the Best Reviewer Award for outstanding contribution to JEEG. The award is presented yearly at the Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP). 

The Best Reviewer Award is dedicated to recognizing the reviewer's fundamental role in the scientific publication process. It also acknowledges reviewers’ significant and ongoing contributions to the discipline of environmental and engineering geophysics by strengthening the peer-review process. The JEEG Editorial Board also hopes this award encourages people to contribute more valuable time and elevate the reviewers’ prestige.

The Editors-in-Chief and Associate Editors of the JEEG select the JEEG reviewer of the year based on the following protocol:
a) Associate Editors rate the quality of each review based on a four-point scale (Poor ¼ 0 point, below average ¼ 1 point; above average ¼ 2 points; exceptional ¼ 3 points) against four following criteria which are adapted from the Publons (, and report the total points out of a possible 12:

1- Timeliness: The review assignment was completed within the time limit.
2- Clarity: The review was easily read and interpreted by the Editor and authors.
3- Helpfulness: Comments were constructive, relevant, and realistic.
4- Thoroughness: The review gave adequate consideration to all aspects of the paper, including abstract, introduction, methodology, figures, interpretation and presentation of results, ethics, relevance, etc.

b) Editor(s)-in-Chief between reviewers with the highest average rates will select the reviewer with the highest quantity of reviews after evaluating and comparing their reviews’ quality.

Also, for each issue, Editors-in-Chief introduce the
best reviewers of the issues and their biographies published in the Author and Best Reviewers biography.

It is our honor is to introduce Dr. Jose Augusto Casas as the first best reviewer of the JEEG vol. 26, issue 2. Dr. Casas has devoted his valuable time to reviewing several manuscripts for the JEEG, all with the highest quality and on-time. We greatly appreciate Dr. Cases’ efforts and valuable service to Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS).
