As 2014 begins we’d like to take the time to thank those who made it possible, including our fantastic peer reviewers. In 2013 1199 people reviewed for PLOS Biology, 3780 in PLOS Genetics, and 2445 for PLOS Computational Biology. These generous individuals donated their time to assessing and improving our authors’ submissions. Their combined efforts have helped the PLOS biological journals (PLOS Biology, PLOS Genetics and PLOS Computational Biology) publish a fantastic and varied array of papers in 2013, amassing 6379364 online views and 673691 pdf downloads of articles so far!
We thank our reviewers for contributing their knowledge to the Open Access corpus. We here at PLOS would like to raise a toast to these amazing individuals. Without their critical insight, support, and hard work we couldn’t do what we do.
We’d also like to draw attention to the folks who have reviewed for the other PLOS journals:
