TPWRS RESOURCE SITE: Best Papers

TPWRS Best Papers

The TPWRS editorial board selects the best transaction papers each year for TPWRS Best Paper Awards. The papers are selected from candidate papers that are nominated by the associate editors and published in TPWRS during the past three years.

The following selection criteria are adopted for TPWRS Best Paper Awards:

  1. Level of novelty and contributions of the paper; and 
  2. Impacts of the paper on the TPWRS community (e.g., through citation and download numbers).

The award is presented at the TPWRS Best Paper Award Ceremony. Since 2019, the following TPWRS papers have been recognized.
