Elsevier Reviewer Experience Team is grateful for my peer review in 2020


“Thank you for being a reviewer!

Dear Ivan Bozhikin,

The exceptional developments of last year reconfirmed the critical importance of peer review and we want to express our gratitude for your work as a referee.
Without your tireless efforts, it would have been impossible to publish so many high-quality papers that have advanced human knowledge in this uncertain time. And without your dedication, we would never have been able to share those findings as rapidly.
Once again, thank you for your ongoing support. Let us close by sending our very best regards to you and your family and wishing you well for the year ahead.
With best wishes,
Elsevier Reviewer Experience Team”
