Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


On behalf of the journal, AGU, and the scientific community, the editors would like to sincerely thank those who reviewed the manuscripts for Geophysical Research Letters in 2020. The hours reading and commenting on manuscripts not only improve the manuscripts but also increase the scientific rigor of future research in the field. We particularly appreciate the timely reviews in light of the demands imposed by the rapid review process at Geophysical Research Letters. The COVID pandemic imposed additional stresses on the review process, as many reviewers had to juggle increased family commitments, hours of online meetings, remote work and instruction, lack of physical access to library resources, and other hardships to maintain the quality and timeliness of their reviews. Although we witnessed an increase in the number of submissions, the average number of days to complete a review increased by less than one day!! That says a lot about the diligence of our reviewers. We deeply appreciate their contributions in these challenging times. With the advent of AGU's data policy, many reviewers have also helped immensely to evaluate the accessibility and availability of data, and many have provided insightful comments that helped to improve the data presentation and quality. We greatly appreciate the assistance of the reviewers in advancing open science, which is a key objective of AGU's data policy. Individuals in italics provided three or more reviews for Geophysical Research Letters during the year.
