...a deep dive into our 2017 reader data, in which we studied total visibility and engagement among readers across many industries interested in certain defining topics of the day.
I am proud to announce JD Supra's 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards, recognizing 26 firms and over 240 authors (from among 50,000) who published their excellent thought leadership on our platform last year.
These awards reflect a deep dive into JD Supra's reader data in 26 established categories, including healthcare, cybersecurity, employer liability issues, product liability, real estate, finance & banking, and others.
We also recognize top visibility in eight emerging topics during 2017 (such as GDPR, Brexit, CFIUS, artificial intelligence, and others) and, this year for the first time, we've included marketing and business development within the legal profession as an award category.
It has been immensely gratifying and fascinating to mine the depths of our reader data and create these awards. With great pride in all of the excellent thought leadership on JD Supra, and the particular achievement of the authors and firms in these categories, I send you onward to the 2018 JD Supra Readers' Choice Awards.
About JD Supra’s Readers' Choice Awards
The Readers’ Choice Awards recognize top authors and firms who were read by C-suite executives, in-house counsel, media, and other professionals across the JD Supra platform during 2017.
This year, the awards recognize:
authors for their visibility and thought leadership covering 26 key, cross-industry topics (10 authors per category)
authors in eight emerging areas of interest (one author per topic);
and firms for their visibility and engagement in the 26 topics covered by the awards (one firm per category).
As the name of suggests, the Readers’ Choice Awards reflect a deep dive into our 2017 reader data, in which we studied total visibility and engagement among readers across many industries interested in certain defining topics of the day.
JD Supra editors chose the 26 main topics covered in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards for their timeliness as well as their proven, ongoing importance.
In each category, we recognize ten authors and one firm for consistently highest readership and engagement within that category for all of 2017. We also recognized a single, top author for each of eight topics that either emerged or dramatically grew in interest during 2017. In total, across all 34 categories, we recognized the excellence and achievement of 242 authors selected from nearly 50,000 who publish their excellent work on our platform.
Along with a top firm in each category, we also feature additional reader data, including the top five most-read articles, popular related topics, total number of authors, and other category-specific information.
Year to year, Readers’ Choice Award categories may change or be expanded to include additional industries or topics.
