Recognition of Leonardo’s Outstanding Peer Reviewers

By Erica Hruby

As a result of more than 50 years of publishing work on the cutting edge, Leonardo has become the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the use of contemporary science and technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts, design and humanities on science and technology.

Constructive peer reviews are critical to Leonardo’s publication process. Leonardo relies on its expert peer reviewers to address work across disciplines with academic rigor and a sympathetic intelligence that provides our authors with insights that allow them to present their work as strongly and clearly as possible.

In 2017 we commenced a quarterly recognition of exceptional peer reviewers in our network. This month we extend our gratitude and congratulations to the following for their in-depth and deeply constructive feedback on papers under consideration for publication.
