Institute for Religion, Politics & Society (IRPS) academic Dr Sally Weller was recognised recently by the Journal of Economic Geography (JOEG), with a 2016 Best Referee Award. Dr. Weller is also a member of the editorial board of the highly cited journal, which is published by Oxford University Press.
The award acknowledges referees used by the journal in 2016 who made significant contributions through the number of reviews provided, speed of response and quality and helpfulness of comments.
IRPS Director Dr. Joshua Roose congratulated Dr Weller on receiving the award.
“Given JOEG used more than 300 referees last year this award reflects Dr. Weller’s excellent work, contribution to the field and the broader culture of research excellence we are creating at IRPS,” Dr. Roose said.
