Peter D. Parker (Professor of Physics & Astronomy) has been is among the 144 Outstanding Referees of the Physical Review and Physical Review Letters Journals as chosen by the journal editors for 2011.
Initiated in 2008, the Outstanding Referee program expresses appreciation for the essential work that anonymous peer reviewers do for our journals. Each year a small percentage of our 45,000 active referees are selected and honored with the Outstanding Referee designation.
Selections are made based on the number, quality, and timeliness of referee reports as collected in a database over the last 23 years.
The program will recognize about 150 referees each year, although larger groups were selected in 2008 and 2009. A full listing and further details on the program are available here: http://publish.aps.org/OutstandingReferees.
