As the editors of a scientific journal, we have the honor of front-row seats to the peer review process. We watch as reviewers bring fresh and frank perspectives to authors' work, identifying weakness in conception or expression, suggesting refinements, and urging authors to clarify a point or to better support an argument. The process is occasionally uncomfortable but almost always respectful, constructive, and productive. The final papers are uniformly better for this input, thus exemplifying the power of collaboration in the scientific process. At the Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems (JAMES), we are fortunate to have a pool of reviewers who volunteer their time, knowledge, and intelligence to improve the work of their colleagues and peers. It is no small task: In 2021, we received 1,088 reviews by 689 individuals. Speaking for ourselves as editors, the 43 devoted associate editors, and the 696 authors, we thank each of you for your selfless contributions to strengthening our community. The editors of Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems thank the 689 reviewers who provided 1,088 reviews during 2021. Their hard work and insights, typically done anonymously, benefits authors, readers, and the broader science community.
