We would like to thank the many reviewers worldwide who contributed to the scholarship represented here and in other issues of Advances in Social Work this past year. In 2019, 189 individuals from 7 countries, 43 states, and 1 territory, and representing 112 colleges/universities and 3 organizations served as AISW reviewers. We truly appreciate the voluntary efforts of our reviewers in enhancing the scholarly contributions of the journal. We are very proud of both the broad participation of reviewers and of our legacy as an open access journal since 2008.
I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the many contributions of our Assistant Editor, Ms. Valerie Decker. Valerie’s diligent efforts on behalf of the journal include assigning reviewers, communicating with authors, copyediting accepted manuscripts, assisting guest editors with all phases of the review process, and basically keeping the whole process on track. Her work on the journal is what keeps it flowing. Thanks, Valerie!Read more about 2019 Reviewer Acknowledgments
