As 2014 begins we’d like to thank those who made it possible for the PLOS Medicine Group journals to serve the scientific community and the public in 2013, in particular our dedicated and insightful peer reviewers. During last year, 663 people reviewed for PLOS Medicine, 2205 for PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, and 3008 for PLOS Pathogens. These generous individuals donated their time to ensuring the level of constructive evaluation that researchers rightly expect of peer-reviewed journals. Their combined efforts enabled the PLOS medical journals (PLOS Medicine, PLOS NTDs and PLOS Pathogens) to publish an outstanding array of papers in 2013, gathering 4107155 online views and 501871 PDF downloads so far!
Thank you, our reviewers, for contributing your knowledge to the Open Access literature. Your critical insight, support, and hard work are indispensable both to our day-to-day operations and to our overall mission.
