The editors of Conservation Biology are immensely proud to have the opportunity to help our authors revise and publish their outstanding research.
Among the many excellent papers, it is our privilege to publish, a few stand out for their quality and impact. To recognize authors who made particularly noteworthy contributions to the journal and conservation science, each year we highlight the best student-led papers published with the Rising Star Award (as judged by Conservation Biology’s editors); the most cited papers; and the papers with the highest Altmetric scores, reflecting to some extent the broader impact of their work.
Here are the awardees for 2021.
