In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Thanks to JHCPU Reviewers
  • Virginia M. Brennan, PhD, MA

The scholars, scientists, clinicians, and community-based workers who review manuscripts for JHCPU perform a critical service, making the Journal what it is. All papers published in JHCPU have received two or more blind external peer reviews; most often, they go through a revision or two, for which the reviewers are also consulted. Furthermore, the reviews that we receive often go above and beyond the call of duty in how insightful and thorough they are.

This Note from the Editor will serve as an introduction and an acknowledgment of our most active peer reviewers. The first list below is the short one—these are people who have written 20 or more high-quality reviews for JHCPU. They are true associates of the editorial team. We rely on their judgement and detailed assessments very regularly. The second list below is longer and just as important—these are people who have written between 10 and 19 high-quality reviews. Like the people on the short list, these reviewers shape the Journal in fundamental ways. Finally, online we list everyone who has reviewed for us during the past year. These reviewers are also big contributors: each one has completed between one and nine reviews.

We are including these lists partly to show our readers and authors more about JHCPU's peer review process. We are also including them to acknowledge the reviewers publicly: without them, JHCPU would not exist.
