ACAMH Top Reviewers for 2018

In his acceptance speech for receiving the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1982, the Swedish biochemist Sune Bergström stated ‘the literature laureate of this year has said that an author can do anything as long as his readers believe him. A scientist cannot do anything that is not checked and rechecked by scientists of this network before it is accepted’ [1].  Authors, editors, publishers, and readers alike all recognize the need for quality peer review, the necessity of the process by which each submission is ‘checked and rechecked’. At the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry (JCPP) and Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH), the practice of peer review helps ensure our impressive standard for high-quality research and scientific rigour is consistently maintained.

In celebration of the strong peer review process upheld by both CAMH and JCPP and in recognition of the exceptional commitment and service to the journals carried out by our reviewers, we are proud to present the list of top reviewers for 2018.

The individuals included in the lists below have been evaluated on the number of reviews they have carried out for the journals in 2018, as well as for the quality and timeliness of their reviews. On behalf of both CAMH and JCPP, we would like to offer our sincere appreciation and gratitude to all these reviewers for their invaluable contributions; their expert analysis and feedback has allowed the journals to continue publishing outstanding research.
