SPE created the A Peer Apart program to recognize dedicated individuals who have been involved in the peer review of 100 or more papers. Members who commit their time to peer review papers make substantial contributions to the industry’s literature by helping to ensure that the papers published in SPE’s technical journals are 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, nine individuals join the elite group who have reached the milestone of reviewing 100 or more technical papers—bringing the total membership of A Peer Apart to 143 dedicated members.
