Dr. Fred Kibenge receives 2022 Springer Nature Editorial Contribution Award
The Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) at the University of Prince Edward Island is pleased to congratulate Dr. Fred Kibenge, professor, Department of Pathology and Microbiology, AVC, on being named one of the 2022 Springer Nature Editorial Contribution Award recipients for his work as a section editor in the Spring Nature BMC Virology Journal
This award recognizes the hard work and dedication of editors and editorial board members who safeguard the scientific accuracy of published works and maintain and protect the trust and integrity of the journals in which they review. Recipients are also acknowledged for their assessment of new submissions and their rigorous management of the peer review process.
“It is humbling to receive such recognition from Springer Nature,” says Dr. Kibenge. “Even more so, this award came as a surprise to me as I didn’t know about the awards until I read the announcement online.”
This year marks the first annual Springer Nature Editor of Distinction Awards. They were created to recognize editors for their dedication and commitment to their journals and their scientific and research communities. The editorial community is recognized in three categories; Editorial Leadership Award, Editorial Contribution Award, and Author Service Award.
