The American Physical Society has recognized Fermilab and Northern Illinois University physicist Philippe Piot for his outstanding contributions as a referee for APS journals. The list of recognized Fermilab scientists also includes Bill Bardeen, Eliana Gianfelice-Wendt, Valery Lebedev, Tanaji Sen and Vladimir Shiltsev.
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 71,000 currently active referees. Like fellowship in the APS, this is a lifetime award. In 2019, 143 outstanding referees were selected.
