Acknowledgement

We thank all the reviewers for their excellent expertise, which helped to increase the reputation of Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery during the year 2020. Without their dedicated hard and time-consuming work the regular publication of AOTS would not have been possible.

The Editors, all authors and certainly also the broad readership of the Journal, express their sincere gratitude to all reviewers.
