Thank to our international Reviewers 2014

We thank most sincerely the outstanding personalities listed below for their contribution as reviewers of submitted manuscripts in 2014. They joined the members of the Editorial Committee in selecting the best manuscripts for publication. Without their expertise, we would not have succeeded to maintain and even increase the quality of the journal and its Impact Factor, which was 1.849 for 2013, with a five-year Impact Factor 1.975. The number of the manuscripts received worldwide in 2014 has reached 750 and hopefully will increase in the next years, allowing further development of the journal.
The Reviewers list has also been published on the journal website www.jgld.ro.
