The American Physical Society has recognized Fermilab physicist Valery Lebedev for his outstanding contributions as a referee for APS journals. The list of recognized scientists also includes Bill Bardeen and Tanaji Sen of Fermilab.
The APS Outstanding Referee program was instituted in 2008 to recognize scientists who have been exceptionally helpful in assessing manuscripts for publication in the APS journals. The highly selective program annually recognizes about 150 of the roughly 60,000 currently active referees. Like fellowship in the APS, this is a lifetime award. In 2015, 142 outstanding referees were selected.
