Acknowledgment of Referees, 2013


On behalf of the editorial team, I would like to wholeheartedly thank all the reviewers who have participated in the Journal's peer review process in 2013. This year UOG has achieved its highest ever impact factor and, together with the high quality and clinical relevance of the material we publish, we have continued to receive a growing number of submissions. Despite the tremendous workload, the average time for a manuscript to be reviewed by the Journal remains at under 30 days.

The continued success of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology is largely attributable to the expertise, hard work and timeliness of our willing reviewers. It is with immense gratitude that we acknowledge here those who have contributed to the Journal's peer review process over the last 12 months.
