This week marks the 5th annual Peer Review Week (September 16 – 20). It is also the week I&EC Research, currently celebrating its 110th Anniversary, recognizes the nearly 6,000 people who reviewed for the journal in the last 12 months.
The latest issue of I&ECR presents its 2019 Excellence in Review Awards. The journal’s team of editors, including Editor-in-Chief Professor Phil E. Savage, honors 32 reviewers whose contributions maintain the journal’s status as the world’s largest and most cited general chemical engineering journal that is also fastest to publication. These 32 reviewers come from 15 different countries, on five different continents.
This year’s theme of this year’s Peer Review Week is “Quality” in Peer Review. In his editorial, Professor Savage reminds authors and reviewers of ways to streamline the peer review process to make it more efficient, such as suggesting reviewers who are familiar with your field but not close friends or collaborators, and always responding to an invitation.
The cover for this issue, as well as the complementing editorial, highlights these 32 notable reviewers. Please join the journal in congratulating them!
