Between one thing and another, 2020 was a bit of a tricky year. (You may have noticed this too.) It can be difficult to secure good referees at the best of times, but amid a global pandemic it’s a whole new challenge. It has often meant that we are bugging people when, at best, they may be adjusting to teaching students online and children at home or, at worst, they or a member of their family have been hit by COVID-19. It’s a small miracle that journals everywhere didn’t simply grind to a halt.
So while we always appreciate our referees and the hard work they do, this year’s cohort deserves special praise. Below are some* of the generous souls who gave their time and their expertise, and in doing so helped us to keep the lights on in BJPS Towers. Thank you!
