Acknowledging and Thanking AFP's Peer Reviewers for 2017


Am Fam Physician. 2018 Apr 15;97(8):502.

This year it is my pleasure to acknowledge the hard work of our peer reviewers in improving American Family Physician's (AFP's) review articles. We recognize that these reviewers have volunteered their time and shared important expertise. Peer review continues to be an essential and valuable process for the journal.1

If you are interested in reviewing for AFP, please visit http://www.aafp.org/journals/afp/reviewers/guide.html and complete a reviewer profile, or e-mail us at afpjournal@aafp.org. To assist reviewers, we have created an online Reviewers' Guide and developed a set of resources. The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has authorized Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for members who serve as peer reviewers for AFP. More information is available on the AAFP Report CME Activities website (https://www.aafp.org/cme/reporting/claim-credit.aspx) by clicking on the Scholarly Activity link under the Report Self-Directed Learning Activities heading.

The list of 2017 peer reviewers is available at https://www.aafp.org/journals/afp/reviewers/lists/2017.html. An archive of reviewers for previous years is available at https://www.aafp.org/journals/afp/reviewers/lists.html.

Editor's note:

Dr. Sexton is Editor-in-Chief of AFP.
