Celebrating Blood's Reviewers



On behalf of Blood, a journal of the American Society of Hematology, and the Editors, we would like to thank our expert reviewers for the time and effort they have dedicated to the journal over the past year. Without the knowledge and critical insights provided by our reviewers, Blood could not exist. Our reviewers contribute directly to the quality of the journal, helping us choose the best research articles and greatly improving them with suggestions before final publication.

In celebration of peer review week, a heartfelt thank you to all our reviewers, and especially to our 50 most active Blood reviewers. We look forward to your continued contribution to Blood as a reviewer and as an author in the coming years.

Yours sincerely,

Bob Löwenberg

Peer Review Week is a global event celebrating the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality. The event brings together individuals, institutions and organizations committed to sharing the central message that good peer review, whatever shape or form it might take, is critical to scholarly communications.


This year’s theme, transparency in review, will allow the community to explore a wide range of opportunities and challenges that this presents for peer review.
