      The Editorial team at Australian Critical Care recognises that the quality of research submitted to our journal continues to rise. While we often look at citation of our work as a reflection of quality, this is not necessarily always the case

      The relationship between quality of research and citation frequency.
      . Citations can be some years in coming, high-quality research may not be heavily cited, and poor and controversial research can sometimes receive high numbers of citations. Public acknowledgement of the quality of our work is uncommon for most. Therefore, in 2017, we decided that it was appropriate to salute the high-quality research submitted to our journal. Selection criteria included quality and scholarship, originality, and relevance of the article. We also considered whether the findings were (or had potential to be) translated into clinical practice and contribute to positive outcomes for patients, families, or health services. The inaugural Australian Critical Care Excellence in Research Award was granted in 2017 to a team led by Dr Marta Raurell-Torreda from Spain for their article Optimising non-invasive mechanical ventilation: Which unit should care for these patients? A cohort study.
