School Psychology Review 2010 Awards

By Matthew Burns

Each year, the editor and associate editors of School Psychology Review select the recipients for two awards. First, we recognize Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) members for distinguished service, which is defined by the quality and number of manuscript reviews completed that year plus additional service beyond typical EAB responsibilities as rated by the associate editors. Second, we honor one article as Article of the Year (AOY), but this year we also recognized two Honorable Mentions. AOY is determined by having all of the articles in each issue carefully read by the associate editors, who then nominate articles to be further evaluated by a committee made up of associate editors, EAB members, and members of the Scientific Advisory Panel.

Editorial Appreciation Award

The 2010 Editorial Appreciation Award was given to two members of the EAB: Beth Doll and John Hosp. Both reviewed a large number of manuscripts this year and continued to provide outstanding feedback. We are very appreciative of the continuously high quality reviews that we receive from all of the EAB members and guest reviewers, but offer a special note of thanks to these two who really went above and beyond.

Article of the Year

The 2010 Article of the Year Award was "Response to Intervention for Middle School Students With Reading Difficulties: Effects of a Primary and Secondary Intervention," written by Sharon Vaughn, Paul T. Cirino, Jeanne Wanzek, Jade Wexler, Jack M. Fletcher, Carolyn D. Denton, Amy Barth, Melissa Romain, and David J. Francis. The article appeared in issue 1 of volume 39.

In addition to Article of the Year, we gave Honorable Mention distinction to "Generalizability and Dependability of Behavior Assessment Methods to Estimate Academic Engagement: A Comparison of Systematic Direct Observation and Direct Behavior Rating," (issue 3 of volume 39) written by Amy M. Briesch, Sandra M. Chafouleas, and T. Chris Riley-Tillman, and "Number Sense in Kindergarten: A Factor-Analytic Study of the Construct," (issue 2 of volume 39) written by Rachel M. Lago and James Clyde DiPerna. Congratulations and thank you for submitting your rigorous and interesting work to School Psychology Review.
