The award is given annually in honour of the late Danish orthodontist Beni Solow to the best paper published in the EJO during the preceding year. The award is selected by the EJO editorial board (excluding the Editor and Associate Editors) in a two stage process. Firstly, each board member selects his ten best papers (excluding any papers in which the board member is himself or herself an author). The scores are collated and the highest ranked papers are then re-evaluated in round two according to the following criteria: relevance, originality, methodology, presentation of results, discussion and impact.
