Editor’s Note: 2013 Reviewers of the Year
Published: 1 February 2014
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.
We are pleased to announce our new impact factor of 9.78, up from 8.44 last year. Based on our impact factor, EHP is now #4 out of 229 Environmental Science journals, #4 out of 176 Public, Environmental & Occupational Health journals, and #2 out of 92 Toxicology journals. Thanks to all the authors, reviewers, readers, and EHP staff who have contributed to our success.
EHP is pleased to announce that it is now operating under a continuous publication workflow! As indicated in a previous announcement, continuous publication allows EHP to post new content online throughout the month, as each paper becomes ready for an issue. This gets content out to our readers much more quickly than the old issue-based model, and unlike our previous Advance Publication model, these are final, edited articles. (more…)
