    We also very grateful to the members of the journal’s Honorary Editorial Board, who have acted as peer reviewers and authors, and have provided guidance on journal content, policy and processes.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the importance of rapid and wide dissemination of high-quality information. Springer Nature is supporting the global response to COVID-19 by making all relevant content immediately and freely available.

    The high quality of the content published in PharmacoEconomics has been reflected in the 5-year impact factor of 4.57. This places the journal in the first quartile of all the relevant categories. Further, PharmacoEconomics has published content in a timely manner, with an average time from submission to first decision of 24 days.

    In 2021, PharmacoEconomics will continue to provide you with high interest, clinically relevant content, including a themed issue on major depressive disorder. We thank you for your continued support.

    With best wishes,

    Christopher Carswell and Timothy Wrightson
