We are happy to announce the winners for the Best Paper from each of our journals for issues published in 2020. These awards were selected by the editors of each journal. We would like to congratulate to all our winners and look forward to celebrating their awards at our Virtual Awards Ceremony.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has published with us, along with all our referees and our journal editors. Our journals would not exist without author submissions, editors and referees. It is the hard work by many that ensures our publications continue to be global leaders in regional studies.
