Significant efforts, time, and resources are devoted for peer-reviewing numerous CytoJournal manuscripts. The Editorial Board of CytoJournal shares a significant proportion of this activity. Additional peers are requested to join periodically as 'academic editors' and reviewers to review CytoJournal manuscripts. We thank all the reviewers and academic editors for their time and efforts for completing the peer-review of CytoJournal manuscripts during 2006. The continued success of this important academic exercise depends on their continued enthusiasm to support with their highest standards. We also thank all the contributing authors for selecting CytoJournal and supporting open access initiative, which allows retention of the copyrights to their corresponding academic accomplishments.

In accordance with the 'close review' policy of CytoJournal, the peer-reviewers are not identified during the review process or in the published articles. CytoJournal periodically designates an 'academic editor' to some manuscripts for various reasons including specialized nature of topic to conflict of interest for conducting and completing the peer-review process for reviewing various manuscripts submitted to CytoJournal. The academic editors are acknowledged in the corresponding articles [1]. As a token of appreciation and thanks, CytoJournal periodically publishes the list of all the academic editors and reviewers involved in the peer-reviewing process of all the manuscripts submitted to CytoJournal irrespective of their publication status [2-25].

On behalf of CytoJournal editorial board and Cytopathology-Foundation Inc, we thank all reviewers and academic editors participating in CytoJournal peer-review process during 2006 [Table 1]. As some of the submitted manuscripts are not accepted for publication, the academic editors reviewing such manuscripts are thanked collectively in this article. The quality of peer-review is extremely important to continue and enhance the high standards of CytoJournal for publishing the best work [26]. Their time and efforts for reviewing the manuscripts to improve their quality is commendable. A high standard of peer-review process in timely fashion is very important component of CytoJournal [27].

We also thank all the contributing authors for supporting the 'open access' initiative of CytoJournal. 'Open access' extends numerous benefits to the authors including the retention of their copyrights of their published material [28].

We invite all the experts in cytopathology and related areas to join the ever increasing demand of good reviewers by sending e-mail to cytojournal@cytojournal.com along with recent curriculum vitae.
