The Editorial Advisory Committee: New members with greater responsibilities. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2005, vol.133, n.1, pp.9-10. ISSN 0034-9887.

During the 1960's Revista Médica de Chile started to request external peer reviews to assess the quality of the manuscripts received and an official Editorial Advisory Committee was incorporated in 1973. Since then, its members have been changed four times. The Committee has served the purposes of providing an external peer review independent to the editors, assessing manuscripts submitted, although many other experts have also contributed and their names have been acknowledged yearly in the July issues of the journal. At the present time, the journal receives an increasing number of manuscripts from a wider range of medical specialties as well as from basic scientists doing research in topics connected with clinical medicine. The overload of papers forces the editors to adopt policies to cope with it. One of them is to renew and enlarge the list of members of the Editorial Advisory Committee, including experts who have recently provided efficient help in reviewing manuscripts. They have also accepted to collaborate with the Editors in selecting other external experts able to participate in the peer-review process, while decisions on acceptance or rejection remain in the Editor and Associate Editors. As a Special Article in this issue, Revista Médica de Chile recognizes again the generosity of all those who along the recent decades have contributed as Members of the Editorial Advisory Committee to the educational, professional and scientific role of this journal (Rev Méd Chile 2005; 133: 9-10)
