In their announcement of this year’s awards, AGU stresses the importance of conscientious reviewing for the quality of their journals and for the social contract between science and society. To acknowledge the reviewers’ merits, which are - due to the nature of the reviewing process - often overlooked, AGU editors select outstanding reviewers from the previous year, who consistently provided constructive and thoughtful reviews.
