Tom Cohen and Paul Lett are among the 149 new Outstanding Referees selected by the editors of the APS journals. Initiated in 2008, the highly selective Outstanding Referee program recognizes scientists who have been exceptionally helpful in assessing manuscripts for publication in the APS journals. Selections are based on two decades of records on the number, quality and timeliness of referee reports.

The 2012 honorees come from 31 different countries, with large contingents from the US, Germany, UK, Canada, and France.
