At every AERC or ICR, the editors of Rheologica Acta present the publication award. This award gets selected by three editorial board members based on a preselection by the editors and is aimed to highlight the type of work which the journal likes to see published.
Ha Seong Kim, Frank Scheffold, Thomas G. Mason: Entropic, electrostatic, and interfacial regimes in concentrated disordered ionic emulsions, Rheologica Acta 55 (2016) 683-697.
Dirk Sachsenheimer, Bernhard Hochstein, Norbert Willenbacher: Experimental study on the capillary thinning of entangled polymer solutions, Rheologica Acta 53 (2014) 725–739.
Gaetano D'Avino, Francesco Greco, Pier Luca Maffettone: Rheology of a dilute viscoelastic suspension of spheroids in unconfined shear flow, Rheologica Acta 54 (2015) 915-928.
Damien C. Vadillo, Wouter Matthues and Christian Clasen: Microsecond relaxation processes in shear and extensional flows of weakly elastic polymer solutions, Rheologica Acta 51 (2012) 755–769.
