The editorial and publishing staff scoured data for all manuscripts published in 2020 to determine the number of times each article was read on PRSGlobalOpen.com (combined Full-Text and PDF usage) for the 16 months following article publication. This 16-month data was combined to create an average 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.

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.

Best Regional Articles include the following article types as candidates: Original Articles, Special Topics, Experimental, Review Articles, Ideas & Innovations.

Authors were not allowed to win twice, even for different papers or different awards. The Editor-in-Chief, Co-Editor, Editor or Co-Editor Emeritua, and the ASPS Executive Committee were ineligible. Section Editors were not excluded from this year’s best paper awards, as the articles were published in 2020 before the PRS Global Open Section Editor roles were created or were appointed.
