Editorial

It is our pleasure to announce the Primate Social Impact Award 2018. The high social impact paper is selected by the Editor-in-Chief and two Vice Editors-in-Chief on the basis of data sources such as the Altmetric score (mentions in the media and social networking sites) and full-text downloads.

The Primates Social Impact Award 2018 goes to the following two papers:

Jie Gao, Yanjie Su, Masaki Tomonaga, Tetsuro Matsuzawa: Learning the rules of the rock–paper–scissors game: chimpanzees versus children (Gao et al. 2018).

Rafaela S. C. Takeshita, Fred B. Bercovitch, Kodzue Kinoshita, Michael A. Huffman: Beneficial effect of hot spring bathing on stress levels in Japanese macaques (Takeshita et al. 2018).

Both papers got a lot of media attention, were frequently mentioned in social networks, and were highly downloaded. Their work thus contributed greatly to enhancing the reputation of our journal.

Please join us in congratulating them.

Tetsuro Matsuzawa

General Director, Japan Monkey Centre

Editor-in-Chief, Primates
