A note of thanks

At the end of this remarkable year, I wish to express my sincere gratitude, also on behalf of the other editors, the members of the editorial board and the publisher of the Egyptian Pediatric Association Gazette, to the referees of the articles considered for the 2021 volume of EPAG. Hundreds of busy colleagues have spent their time in assessing close to 130 manuscripts submitted to our Journal, up from around 93 in 2020, in selecting the ones that may possibly be published, and in improving the quality of the selected articles. Many of the reviewers have helped us in the past years as well, and we are tremendously appreciative and grateful to them. It is largely thanks to them that EPAG is doing well in attracting and publishing valuable contributions on promoting new developments in pediatrics, pediatric surgery and related sub-specialties, entailing recent clinical advances, innovations and experimental developments, being animal or laboratory-based experimentation, pertinent to Medical and Surgical Pediatrics.
