Thanking Our Peer Reviewers

In 2013 PLOS ONE published 31,500 articles, nearly 8,000 more than in 2012. In reaching this milestone, we would like to take a moment to recognize the hard work and dedication of our peer reviewers. Without their critical insight, support, and hard work, we couldn’t do what we do.

Last year we had over 78,000 unique reviewers from 172 countries. The top 20 institutions that contributed nearly 4,000 reviews are represented below (find the interactive version here).Reviewer word cloud

We would like to send a sincere thank you to all of our amazing peer reviewers. We are enormously grateful for your contributions and look forward to working with you in the New Year!

In addition to PLOS ONE’s record-breaking year, PLOS has just announced the publication of its 100,000th article, so we also  extend our thanks for the hard work of the peer reviewers contributing to all of the PLOS journals.

Best wishes in the New Year!

PLOS ONE Team

    “PLOS has just announced the publication of its 100,00th article”
    Small typo (missing a 0), I assume it’s the 100,000th article.
