For best paper award, technical excellence is typically the most important criteria. Other criteria such as Innovation, Research Design, Table and Figure/Picture Presentation, Title, Abstract and Conclusions, Plagiarism, etc. are also considered. The best paper is selected from a list of papers by a committee of the journal editorial board members. The selection committee is responsible for ensuring the selection process is fair and unbiased and that any possible conflicts of interests are handled appropriately.
