a person or thing that precipitates an event.
By definition, Dr. Linda Bisson is a catalyst.
For the past 16 years, under the passionate guidance of Linda Bisson, ASEV has pushed forward in disseminating technical research without ever compromising the highest scientific and editorial standards. As Linda relinquishes her well-respected position as ASEV science editor, the Society proudly recognizes her extraordinary volunteer efforts, which have had a lasting and critical impact on ASEV.
Linda’s tenure as science editor, an ASEV board position, began in 2000. Under her leadership, AJEV moved to an online publication, making it more accessible to members and students. She oversaw the transition of AJEV manuscript submission from mail-in to online submissions, restructured the editorial board, and as a parting gift to the Society, played a vital role in planning and developing our newest publication, Catalyst: Discovery into Practice.
On behalf of the board members, staff, and members-at-large, we would like to thank Linda Bisson for her extraordinary commitment to our organization and our industry. Her dedication to science, her passion for learning, her integrity, and her inestimable energy have all shaped a more sophisticated, advanced, and dynamic industry. We have grown under her bright smile and invaluable guidance.
We’re pleased to announce the 2016 Best Paper Award recipients. The selected authors will be formally recognized at the 67th National Conference in Monterey, California. The winning AJEV papers are available for free at http://www.asev.org/best-paper-awards.
ASEV would like to thank the Best Paper Awards Committee members for their dedication throughout the year for reading dozens of manuscripts to make the tough decisions in selecting this year’s winners.
Catalyst is the sister publication of the American Journal of Enology and Viticulture (AJEV). While AJEV focuses on foundational research, Catalyst will look to translate research into practice, extending fundamental discoveries in the scientific disciplines to sustain and advance grapegrowing and winemaking. ASEV members will be able to access information via HighWire Press, the current publisher for AJEV online.
