In continuation of one of our favourite journal traditions, we are happy to announce the winners of the annual awards for most cited articles and most active editors. With this, we’d like to celebrate their impressive contributions to the creation and dissemination of high-quality scholarly research. 

In what has turned into an annual tradition, we are awarding the lead authors of the top three most cited PhytoKeys articles from 2020 and the three subject editors who have completed the most editorial tasks at PhytoKeys in 2023.

This year, the winning authors are:

1.     Wen-Hong Chen for Gesneriaceae in China and Vietnam: Perfection of taxonomy based on comprehensive morphological and molecular evidence (42 citations)

2.     Elizabeth A. Kellogg for Checklist of the grasses of India (32 citations)

3.     John R. I. Wood for A foundation monograph of Ipomoea (Convolvulaceae) in the New World (28 citations)

And the winning editors:

1.     Alexander Sennikov (15 tasks)

2.     Lorenzo Peruzzi (11 tasks)

3.     Eberhard Fischer (11 tasks)

Each of them will be granted a voucher for a free publication in PhytoKeys in appreciation of their work and dedication.

“Three great papers and three great editors! The awards are well-deserved and I am proud to be an Editor-in-Chief to recognize them,” said W. John Kress, Editor-in-Chief of the journal.
