Appreciation to Reviewers
John A. Talbott, M.D.
Psychiatric Services 2003; doi: 10.1176/appi.ps.54.12.1577
text A A A

This appreciation to reviewers is unique, in that it is my last in this journal. It gives me the opportunity to look back over 23 years of editing Psychiatric Services and its predecessor, Hospital and Community Psychiatry, and appreciate what a wonderful family of editors, authors, editorial staff, and reviewers support and sustain the journal.

In 1979, when I was interviewed by the search committee to be the first member-editor of H&CP—as it was really known—I had little insight into what made a monthly scientific journal like ours tick. I had experience editing or working editorially on a secondary school newspaper, a college humor magazine, a medical school yearbook, a district branch newsletter, and a psychiatric quarterly, but running this operation was light-years apart.

John Nemiah, the much beloved editor of the American Journal of Psychiatry at the time of my appointment, generously offered me his card file of reviewers, which, as I recall, fit into a shoebox. Over time it grew and became computerized and eventually was transmogrified into our online system, Manuscript Central. From just a few hundred names, it grew to our current database of more than 1,200 reviewers—some self-referred, some invited because they were authors of articles on related subjects, and some recommended by editorial board members, contributors, and other reviewers.

At that time we had one statistical reviewer, Ted Lorei, who was terrific but who saw few of the papers. Today he is at the center of a large panel of statistical and methodological consultants who review about 10 percent of submissions. Ted monitors the quality of these special reviews, settles disputes, and advises us on how statistical results should be presented in the pages of the journal.

I've said it often in this space that the editor's work would be impossible in this day and age without high-quality, selfless, hard-working reviewers—and I'll repeat it. You provide the knowledge and energy that are necessary to control quality, make judicious use of space, and identify exaggeration and fraud. You are what makes editing Psychiatric Services fun.

I want to take this opportunity to thank two other individuals who fit the description above in many ways. They are Teddye Clayton and Connie Gartner, two of the finest people it has been my pleasure to work with. As managing editors, they have had the job of keeping me honest, holding the journal steady, and at the same time ensuring that the quality of the journal improves over time.

On a personal note, I've never done anything as enjoyable as editing this journal over all these years. In addition, I enjoy beyond measure the personal notes to the editor that accompany your reviews and that tell me how you are and let me know, confidentially, what you "really" think about a manuscript. It has been so much more than a job; it's been a wonderful, wonderful journey.

We're lucky, all of us, to have as our new editor someone who brings to the journal as much devotion, experience, and quest for the best as I hope I've been able to bring. I wish him my best, and I think you'll find, as I have for so many years, that he'll be fun and creative to work with.

Adieu, we'll meet again, and thanks for everything.
