Abstract:The American Physical Society (APS) started a program in 2008 to recognize its most outstanding referees. The award, based on the quality, number, and timeliness of reports, was made to 534 referees chosen from the 42,000 active APS referees. The award is not money or subscriptions, but a certificate and a pin, and more importantly, recognition of an outstanding job done for the community. The program will continue with the selection of around 140 referees each year. The design and implementation of this award program are described, with some indications of how it has been received.
