To enrich the contribution and to honour the contributors of outstanding merit, the ICJ Best Paper Awards were launched starting 2020. All papers published from January to December 2020 were considered for this annual award. Applying the key criteria of novel concept and well-documented paper, of the 92 published papers, the top fifteen papers were shortlisted. These selected top fifteen papers were further evaluated by an independent jury panel consisting of three faculty members from academia with vast research experience and association with reputed international journals.
The jury panel carefully evaluated these shortlisted papers on categories such as:
Experiments and model development
Life cycle assessment and environmental disturbance indicators to evaluate the sustainability of concrete mix designs.
We congratulate the winners and thank our jury panel who took time off their busy schedule to carefully evaluate each contribution and select the top three ICJ Best Papers - 2020. We also thank Dr Radhakrishna Pillai who has been instrumental in conceptualizing and instituting the Best ICJ Paper Awards.
