We are proud to announce that the Reviewer of the Month Award for November 2021 goes to Dr. Emma Marczylo.
As a means to promote the hard work and dedication invested “behind the scenes” in order to improve scientific publications, each month, BJBMS Editors select a reviewer who performed the best amongst all the reviewers in the current month. Selection is based on the quality, thoroughness, and the timeliness of the review. It is a difficult task for our Editors, as they try not to underestimate the time and efforts of each of the reviewers who reviewed for the BJBMS in the current month.
Dr. Emma Marczylo has a particular research interest in studying the potential impact of environmental exposures, such as air pollution, bioaerosols, and e-cigarette vape, on public health.
We asked Dr. Emma Marczylo about the importance and other aspects of the peer-review process in general:
I belive the peer-review process is vital in ensuring published research is of the highest quality. As such, it is important for reviewers to dedicate appropriate time and consideration to the process for it to be a success.
BJBMS congratulates Dr. Emma Marczylo and wishes her many awards and recognitions in the future.
