Thanking Our Valued Reviewers
Peer review is essential to ensuring the quality and integrity of the articles that appear in Veterinary Medicine and are posted on its Web site. Every manuscript submitted to the journal is reviewed by at least two acknowledged experts, usually specialists, on the paper's topic. Reviewers spend countless hours carefully evaluating a paper's accuracy, thoroughness, objectivity, and suitability. Besides offering the editors their recommendations on publication, reviewers provide authors with thoughtful advice on how to improve their papers. In short, our reviewers set a standard for excellence in the information published in Veterinary Medicine.
We thank the following people who reviewed papers evaluated for publication in 2008. Take a moment to scan this list of distinguished veterinary professionals from around the world. You'll no doubt recognize most of these colleagues as former professors, well-known authors, mentors, renowned clinicians, eminent researchers, and other leaders in veterinary medicine. They brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the task. We greatly appreciate their painstaking efforts and their generous offering of time and professional talent.
