Thanking reviewers
  1. I B Pless, Editor

    Statistics from Altmetric.com

    At the end of each year it is customary to thank all those who contribute so critically to this journal's success. First, and foremost, the entire editorial board deserves more thanks than most readers suspect. Unlike many other journals, our is a “working board” and hard working at that. Almost every paper submitted to us is reviewed by at least one editor as well as by at least one other expert reviewer. For the most part, board reviewers provide prompt and constructive comments. To all of them, my heartfelt thanks. I am especially grateful to the deputy and associate editors to whom I turn regularly for advice on all manner of issues. The contributions of the regional editors and regional correspondents give the journal its special, distinctive flavour—one that most readers greatly appreciate. These, too, deserve great thanks.

    During this year of change, we have replaced many faithful, long serving members of the board with new blood. To the former, my great thanks for a jobwell done. Special thanks is owing to Jan Shield who, for the past four years, has written Splinters & Fragments. This popular section always arrived on time and was flawlessly written, spiced with sharp observations, and occasionally laced with humour. Sadly, Jan has changed positions and is no longer able to write this column. We shall search for a replacement, but hers is a tough act to follow.

    To the new board members, a warm welcome and the hope that the shock of the workload has not been too great. I am deeply indebted to every member of the board and trust I will be forgiven if, in the interests of space, I do not list each here. Simply look at the masthead and you will know who I mean.

    The list that follows includes all the other expert reviewers whose services were generously provided and warmly received. I blame the computer if there are any omissions and offer my sincere apologies.
