Selections are based on the number, quality, and timeliness of referee reports. The 149 honorees in 2012 come from 31 different countries, 3 from Spain.Together with the UB researcher Joan Solà, Lorenzo Luis Salcedo of the University of Granada and Michele Modugno of the University of the Basque Country have also been selected. In previous editions, researchers of the Faculty of Physics of the UB were also recognized as outstanding referees: Ignacio Pagonabarraga (2011), José M. Sancho (2009), M. Àngels Serrano (2009) and Marian Bogunyà (2008).

Joan Solà Peracaula (Santa Coloma de Farners, 1956) is professor of Theoretical Physics of the Department of Structure and Constituents of Matter and member of the UB’s Institute of Cosmos Sciences. He leads the consolidated research group Theoretical High Energy Physics and his research lines are elementary particle physics and theoretical cosmology.
