Each year the editorial board of American Journal of Climate Change (AJCC) reviews the papers published by AJCC to select the papers they consider to have had the most influence on the research of climate change and related fields since their original publication. The AJCC Most Influential Paper Award recognizes papers that had significant impacts in the scientific community (e.g. cited by Nature, Science) or had more than 10 citations based on the Web of knowledge. This award consists of a certificate listing the paper, the author’s name and the author’s affiliation and carries a financial prize of $600 to cover the article processing charge of their future paper published by AJCC.
