  • Please rank papers in order, with the first paper the one you regard as most deserving. You need not provide a rank for every paper nominated.
  • Votes must be received from a traceable email address, and if I cannot verify their origin they will be discarded.
  • Authors/co-authors should not vote for their own papers.
  • Please use the subject line “Best Paper in Pedometrics, 2019” in your email.
