From original launch (in 2006) through the end of 2008, PLOS ONE benefited from the comments and insight of almost 9,000 external peer reviewers. These individuals often work in an anonymous capacity, in their spare time, and for no remuneration. They are the unsung heroes of the academic journal publication process and both ourselves (the publishers), and the recipients of their advice (the authors and our academic editors) greatly appreciate and value their efforts.
We would like to thank all those who submitted reviews on PLOS ONE papers through December 31st 2008.
We would especially like to thank our most frequent reviewers of PLOS ONE papers through December 20th 2008.
Please see these additional blog posts, thanking those peer reviewers who worked on the journal after January 1st 2009:
