Thank you to our peer reviewers


To coincide with Peer Review Week 2016, the Journal of Comorbidity would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the external peer reviewers who have given up their time to provide expert advice and guidance for improving the quality of the work we publish.

We would like to send a sincere thank you to all reviewers for their constructive, rigorous and timely critiques of our submitted papers. Their efforts have enabled us to maintain a mean time from submission to first decision of only 4 weeks. Without their hard work, dedication and ongoing support, we would not be able to provide our authors with this excellent and efficient service.

We are extremely grateful for your contributions and look forward to working with you in the future.
