Vote for the Pedometrics Best Paper 2020

Dear colleagues,

The Awards Committee of the Pedometrics Commission has received nominations from an open call for the Best Paper 2020 competition.  The committee members each ranked the nominated papers received (with the exception of any on which they were coauthors), and the top five are listed below in alphabetical order for a public vote. 

Votes should be received by Murray Lark at murray.lark( at ) before midday, GMT on 30th November 2021

  • 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, 2020” in your email.
