This is the time to thank all the CytoJournal peer reviewers for their critical participation in the exercise of publishing scientific literature prior to its dissemination. The critical efforts of all the peer reviewers are obvious by the continued high standards of CytoJournal articles. Although according to the “close review” policy of CytoJournal (http://www.cytojournal.com/prp.asp), all CytoJournal reviewers are anonymous, their deserving role must be acknowledged prominently.

This editorial collectively acknowledges the efforts of all CytoJournal reviewers [Tables 13] for reviewing the manuscripts submitted during 2008 through 2010. Some of these manuscripts were recommended to be published after appropriate responses by the authors to the reviewer criticism.(152) Others could not be accepted for publication based on reviewer recommendations.

As per the peer review policy (http://www.cytojournal.com/prp.asp), depending on various reasons, including potential of conflict of interest, some of the manuscripts are periodically assigned to an “academic editor” who completes the review process and recommends final decision to the executive editor. The academic editors are acknowledged in the article published.(5354) However, the academic editors of the manuscripts which were not recommended to be published are also included in this list with all the reviewers.

On behalf of CytoJournal editorial board (http://www.cytojournal.com/editorialboard.asp) and Cytopathology Foundation Inc. ( http://www.cytopathology-foundation.org), I thank all the reviewers and academic editors for participating in and completing CytoJournal peer review process for multiple CytoJournal manuscripts from 2008 through 2010 [Tables 13].[152] Please accept this editorial as token of appreciation for the time and efforts to improve the final quality of CytoJournal articles. We request your continued participation in high standards of CytoJournal peer review process in a timely fashion. This is a critical component of any scientific peer reviewed journal such as CytoJournal.[5354]

Based on the input from you, CytoJournal is organizing an opportunity to claim CME for participating in peer review of CytoJournal manuscripts. Soon CytoJournal peer reviewers completing high-quality review process in a timely fashion could claim AMA Category 1 CME credits after each review, in collaboration with Wayne State University School of Medicine (Southeast Michigan Center for Education), Detroit, MI, USA. Once this feature becomes active, it will be obvious during the acceptance and completion of review process. In addition, you will be notified as soon as the online infrastructure for claiming the CME is complete.

For any manuscript submitted to CytoJournal, the reviewers are selected from the core reviewer panel (http://www.cytojournal.com/reviewers.asp). All the experts in cytopathology are invited to join the ever increasing demand of good reviewers by visiting “Reviewer Corner” on CytoJournal home page (www.cytojournal.com) and selecting “Join as CytoJournal Reviewer” at http://www.cytojournal.com/joinus.asp.

CytoJournal and Cytopathology Foundation also thank all the authors for contributing to the “open access charter” of CytoJournal http://www.cytojournal.com/downloads/cpl.pdf. By publishing in CytoJournal, you could disseminate your work freely all over the world without losing your hard earned copyright by agreeing to share it in public domain. The benefits include study proven higher access, visibility, and downloads of your work.[5557] The probability of citation, which depends on the topic and quality of your study-article, is similar to the conventional journals.[57]
