I would like to thank all of the reviewers from 2006 for their time and expertise. These physicians and surgeons are largely responsible for the quality of the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery. This was a notable year for our journal. We began our Web-based review system, which has made the review process more efficient and rapid. The Web also allows us to better utilize a large number of excellent reviewers from outside the United States. Beginning in the latter part of 2006, we have been able to offer continuing medical education credits for those reviewers who perform at a high level in terms of the quality and timeliness of their reviews. We are in the process of revising our current reviewer database; if any of our readers have strong expertise and would like to review for the Archives, please contact the editorial office. The Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery is now 8 years old, has been listed in PubMed from the beginning, and is now included in the ISI (Institute for Scientific Information) Science Citation Index Expanded, which will provide the journal's first published impact factor for the year 2007, to be released in mid-2008. I would also like to thank our dedicated Editorial Board and the talented JAMA and Archives staff for their invaluable support. Finally, I would like to recognize Jan Thyng, our Editorial Assistant, who coordinates the complex process required to publish each issue with great patience and skill.
