The Editorial and Publishing staff scoured data for all manuscripts published in 2014 to determine the number of full text article views, number of PDF views, number of times sent by email and the number of times the article was added to a personal collection on The data was further calculated to represent the average number of times per month those activities occurred. This average data was combined to create a score for each manuscript, placing them on equal footing, independent of publication month. The articles were sorted by score, and selected based on pre-existing categories. Authors were not allowed to win twice, even for different papers or different awards. The Editor-in-Chief, Co-Editor, current Editorial Board members and the ASPS Executive Committee were ineligible.
