I would like to take this opportunity to formally acknowledge and congratulate the recipients of the 2015 Articles of the Year. Papers published in 2015, specifically Volumes 11(1) through 11(4), were considered for each of the awards. The award-winning manuscripts were selected by members of the Editorial Board based on their innovation, significance, approach, potential impact, and overall writing. Award recipients were acknowledged during the International Association of Forensic Nurses' Award Ceremony at the Denver Sheraton Downtown Hotel, Denver, Colorado, on September 29, 2016. Congratulations to these worthy recipients! Three articles were selected for recognition from the 2015 publishing year.
