ERJ peer reviewers: does this pillar of the Journal's quality need help?

European Respiratory Journal

The European Respiratory Journal ( ERJ) has a long history of success [ 1]. This success, which has allowed the Journal to keep its impact factor (IF) above 5 for 5 consecutive years, has been paralleled by the impressive growth of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and its membership [ 2]. No doubt, a strong society needs a strong journal.
