Every year, JIPB's Editorial Board selects two high-quality papers to receive the prizes of "Best Research Article" and "Best Invited Expert Review". These awards are contingent upon the papers being voted as the best papers published in JIPB over the course of the previous year, based on the quality of research and innovation, the number of citations, and the number of downloads through Wiley Online Library. We are thus delighted to present JIPB’s best published papers of 2020:
Best Research Article:
Chao-Lei Liu, Zhen-Yu Gao, Lian-Guang Shang, Chang-Hong Yang, Ban-Pu Ruan, Da-Li Zeng, Long-Biao Guo, Fang-Jie Zhao, Chao-Feng Huang and Qian Qian
J Integr Plant Biol 2020, 62 (3): 314-329
Best Invited Expert Review:
Kong Chen, Guo-Jun Li, Ray A. Bressan, Chun-Peng Song, Jian-Kang Zhu and Yang Zhao
J Integr Plant Biol 2020, 62 (1): 25-54
The prizes include:
A "Best Paper" certificate;
A cash award of RMB ￥2,000;
On behalf of the JIPB Editorial Board and the journal’s Co-Editors-in-Chief Prof. Kang Chong and Prof. Zhizhong Gong, we would like to congratulate the winners on their excellent submissions.
We wish the authors the very best in their future endeavors, and hope that they will consider publishing with us again in the future!
