PNTD External Review

Posted by AmaraEzeamama on 02 May 2012 at 20:48 GMT

I want to gratefully and publicly acknowledge the rigor of peer review at PNTD. In particular, I was inspired by the anonymous reviewers' willingness to put in what must have been be several hours to provide the depth and rigor of critiques that significantly improved the quality of our published paper. You each went above and beyond the routine call of duty and I thank you.
