Appreciation to Reviewers

With this issue, the Journal of Behavioral Health Services & Research (JBHS&R) concludes its 48th year of publication. I am very grateful to all of the authors, reviewers, and JBHS&R Editorial Board members for their exceptional contributions to this peer-reviewed publication, particularly during this COVID-19 Global Pandemic.

Editing and publishing a scholarly peer-reviewed journal is an amazing as well as complex initiative that involves working with a critical mass of fascinating, highly creative, well-educated, and very productive assemblage of superb individuals. Certainly, the JBHS&R could not exist without the manuscript authors, the JBHS&R Editorial Board members, and the Ad Hoc External Manuscript Reviewers.

At this time, I would like to recognize and express my profound appreciation to the many individuals who continue to support this scholarly publication: Mr. Chuck Ingoglia and Ms. Mary Johnson at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing; Ms. Katherine Chabalko, Mr. Bob Darnowsky, Mr. Arene Ligo, Mr. Genesis Obero, Mr. Soren Malpass, and Ms. Sara Yanny-Tillar at Springer publishing; Dr. Mario Hernandez, Dr. Ardis Hanson, Ms. Sarah Sheffield, and Ms. Kimberly Menendez at the University of South Florida; and the academic and institutional libraries who have electronic access to the JBHS&R.

This scholarly publication is committed to publishing applied services research, services delivery, policy, and implementation science manuscripts in behavioral health (including alcohol, drug use, and mental health) services. The ability to improve the quality of the manuscripts published in the JBHS&R is largely dependent upon the strength of the double-blind peer-review process. Manuscript referees provide the JBHS&R with an immeasurable wealth of expertise and willingness to volunteer their time and vivacity on behalf of the JBHS&R. Therefore, I especially would like to thank and express my deepest appreciation to the individuals listed below, all of whom kindly reviewed at least one manuscript submitted to the JBHS&R during 2020–2021.
