The annual Best Paper Awards recognize high-quality, high-impact papers published in Resources, Conservation & Recycling (RCR). The awards are selected based on scholarly merits by an Award Committee consisting of members of the Editorial Board.

Among the 689 papers we published in 2021, three research and three review articles were selected by the Award Committee to receive the 2021 Best Paper Awards.

More information about the award can be found in RCR’s official website:
