EHP received more than 1,500 submissions during 2013, and nearly 500 of those papers were sent out for peer review. Each paper is evaluated by at least 2 reviewers for scientific quality and content. EHP is very grateful to the nearly 1,000 reviewers who were part of the peer-review process. A list of those reviewers is available on the journal’s website. EHP would also like to recognize our top Reviewers of the Year. These individuals completed at least 5 reviews during the year and received high ratings from the Associate Editors for the timeliness and quality of their reviews. The EHP 2013 Reviewers of the Year are Daniel Axelrad, John Balmes, Aaron Barchowsky, Adrian Barnett, David Bellinger, Joe Braun, Gerard Hoek, Matthew Longnecker, and C. Arden Pope III. EHP is grateful to these and all other reviewers who assisted us during 2013.
