I once turned down a "best paper" award because a publication was mislabeled as "refereed" in Ulrich's. (The organization sponsoring the award gave extra points points for papers that appeared in refereed journals). When the people gave me advance notice of the award I asked them how they ranked the papers. They read off a long list of factors, one of which gave extra points for a refereed publication. I informed them that the journal the paper was published in was not refereed. They said "But Ulrich's says it's refereed." I turned down my award because I felt the review process was unfair to others who had actually published in refereed publications. Bernie Sloan Sora Associates Bloomington, IN
