We would like to extend our most sincere thanks to the 191 reviewers listed below.

All have voluntarily contributed to the quality of this journal by performing reviews upon invitation in the year 2019, both for ThCVS and ThCVS Reports. Their dedication is essential for keeping the high standards of our bilaterally blinded peer review process which may sometimes seem cumbersome but is definitely worth it.

167 reviewed for the main journal only, 12 for the Reports only, 12 for both. Again, we can welcome several newcomers who were invited for the first time, accepted to collaborate and continue to do so. The new expansion into pediatric cardiology contributed to that recruitment by nature. This continued diversity helps to distribute the workload upon as many shoulders as possible.

Our faithful reviewers share most of the burdens but only few of the pleasures which editing a scientific journal implies. This modest “thank you” from the societies, the editorial staff, and the publisher is meant to serve as an acknowledgment of your services. Please remember that the Thieme Publishing Group has partnered with “Publons” to facilitate official recognition and credit for contributions to peer review.

We hope that everybody will continue to support us in the new decade.
