Dr William Day of Hexham, Northumberland received a EurAgEng Recognition Award for his work in developing, promoting and expanding ‘Biosystems Engineering’, the official Scientific Journal of EurAgEng.
William became Editor in Chief of the Journal in 2007 and since then encouraged submissions such that the Journal now receives over 1200 submissions a year. This has enabled the Biosystems Engineering journal to maintain an extremely high standard and improve its international standing. The journal’s Impact Factor, which is used by many to indicate quality, has increased during Bill’s period in charge from less than 1 to 3.215. Now that William is retiring from the Editorship, with this award EurAgEng wants to thank him for his efforts in expanding and developing the readership, quality and standing of Biosystems Engineering internationally.
