It is with great pleasure that we announce the winner of the second annual Andrology Award for the best manuscript published in Andrology during 2014. The award is selected from all manuscripts published in Andrology during 2014 and is chosen by the Board of Associate Editors and the Editors-In-Chief (Rajpert-De Meyts & Carrell, 2014). The award paper for 2014 comes from the laboratory of Dr. Bernard Robaire at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and is entitled ‘Paternal exposure to testis cancer chemotherapeutics alters sperm fertilizing capacity and affects gene expression in the eight-cell stage rat embryo’ (Maselli et al., 2014). The elegant design of the study, the potential importance of the results in a translational sense, and the clear and organized presentation of the study in the manuscript contributed to the selection of this article as the award recipient. The first author, Dr. Jennifer Maselli, completed this study as part of her doctoral dissertation. Dr. Maselli was awarded her doctorate last year and is currently working in industry. The senior authors, Dr. Barbara Hales and Dr. Bernard Robaire, are well known for their longtime productive research in reproductive biology. Dr. Robaire will present this study in an oral presentation at the annual meeting of the American Society of Andrology in Salt Lake City April 18–21, 2015, at which time he will receive the award on behalf of the research team. We emphasize that the selection of one ‘award’ manuscript is very difficult when numerous worthy manuscripts were published. We hope that this award not only gives recognition to the high quality of the award manuscript, but also highlights the excellent quality of manuscripts in general published in the
