In September 2001, when the AVMA Council on Research meets, its Committee on the AJVR will make appointments to the AJVR Board of Scientific Reviewers. Every year, the committee attempts to fill 23 positions, choosing individuals who represent the variety of subject areas of manuscripts published in the journal. Readers who wish to be considered for appointment to the AJVR Board of Scientific Reviewers should contact Dr. Kurt Matushek at the AVMA editorial offices for an application form. Completed application forms must be returned by Aug 15, 2001. Appointments are for a three-year term, and new appointments will become effective January 1, 2002.
