Reviewers of the Year

The continued excellence that readers have grown to expect from the American Journal of Epidemiology is due in large part to the unheralded yet critical contributions of peer reviewers. Starting in 2014, the Society for Epidemiologic Research and the AJE have jointly supported the creation of an award to honor the top reviewers of the year. Throughout the year, the Editors have nominated reviewers as reviews were received. At the end of the year, the Editor-in-Chief assessed all nominated reviewers in collaboration with the other Editors to identify the 10 leading reviewers.
