Transparent peer review process at Annals of Anatomy.
The comments provided by the reviewers very often considerably help to improve and strengthen a paper. However, currently only rarely public credit is given to this important contribution of the reviewers. In addition, the authors' response letter accompanying a revised version often contains important information which may be regarded as an added value to the final version of the manuscript. Therefore, the AANAT Editors decided that the non-confidential comments of the reviewers and the non-confidential authors' responses will be published as online supplementary material together with the final version of an eventually accepted article. Of course the reviewers' anonymity will be strictly preserved.
