To coincide with Peer Review Week 2022 on September 19-23, we recognize outstanding peer reviewer Rosa Silva, whose work consistently demonstrates excellence. The theme of this year's Peer Review Week is "Research integrity: creating and supporting trust in research." Below, Rosa provides her thoughts on this theme and the peer review process.

"Scientific research affects future generations and sustains our society. Given the importance of science, ensuring the integrity of the entire research cycle is essential. Being a peer reviewer is a way to be an active researcher who helps create trustworthy research. As both an author and a reviewer, I feel that the peer review process adds value to the reliability and increases the quality of how scientific communication is presented. As it is always possible to do better, the peer review process is an opportunity to strengthen the value and quality of the science that we disseminate and give back to society."
