Matthew Cartmell, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Sound and Vibration, describes the Doak Award.
The Doak Award was established in 2011 by Elsevier in order to highlight the most successful paper in the Journal of Sound and Vibration each year. The award is made in the name of Professor Philip E. Doak, the first Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Sound and Vibration, and the person with whom the journal will always be inextricably linked.
Professor Doak was, by all possible standards, an exceptional editor. He encouraged new academics, in the best way possible, by combining great personal kindness with a shrewd and objective assessment of the manuscripts that came to him. This ensured an enviable academic standard for the journal, and it has been the pleasure and privilege of successive editors to attempt to emulate his style and academic standards.
The Doak Award is given for the paper which has the best combined record of downloads and citations. All papers published in the Journal across the selected review period are eligible from across the whole spectrum of sound and vibration.
