MERLOT created the Peer Reviewer Extraordinaire award to honor the hard work and generous donation of our time, energy and enthusiasm from members like Dr. Zenon. They rely heavily on Peer Reviewers to help expand the MERLOT collection and perform the Peer Review process.

The honorees completed MERLOT GRAPE (Getting Reviewers Accustomed to the Process of Evaluation) Camp and worked with the editors to complete their reviews on a timely basis.
