Last year, SPE created "A Peer Apart" to recognize those dedicated
individuals who have been involved in the peer review of 100 or more papers.
Members who commit to be peer reviewers make substantial contributions to the
industry’s literature by helping to ensure that the papers published in SPE’s
technical journals are of the highest quality. Over time, these individuals
volunteer hundreds of hours to the society, making SPE journals a valuable
resource for the industry.
This year, four individuals join the elite group who have reached the
milestone of 100 papers reviewed, bringing total membership of "A Peer
Apart" to 90 dedicated members. These individuals were recognized during
the Editorial Review Committee reception at SPE’s Annual Technical Conference
and Exhibition on 21 September 2008.
In the September issue of the SPE Drilling & Completion journal,
paper SPE 105193 was printed with an error in two of its figures. Figs. 4 and 5
erroneously had captions reversed. In Fig. 4, "EMW From Downhole PWD"
and "EMW From Cementing Unit" should have been reversed. In Fig. 5,
"Downhole ESD From PWD" and "Surface Cement Unit Pressure"
should have been reversed. The corrected versions of the figures can be found
with the paper online in the eLibrary at www.spe.org/elibrary.
