[Comment] In appreciation of the peer-review heroes from 2015
The Lancet is responding to the increased volume of high quality research by not only expanding the number of specialty journals within our family, but also by publishing more research studies. In 2015, we published almost 20% more research papers than in the previous year. And we did this more quickly, by offering the possibility of 10 + 10 rapid publication for randomised controlled trials sent for peer review. We also launched The Lancet Clinic, published highly clinical and global health Commissions, and Series on topics as diverse as radiation and religion.
