Dear Colleague,

I am writing to you as the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of General Practice (EJGP).

One of the key aims of the European Journal of General Practice (EJGP) is to foster scientific research in general practice/family medicine (GP/FM) and primary health care (PHC) in Europe by publishing relevant scientific articles. Submitted manuscripts are handled via our manuscript management system https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/EJGP. All submitted manuscripts are peer-reviewed (double-blind).

To improve the selection of appropriate reviewers for this purpose, we would like to expand our database of experts. I have attached a ‘Call for reviewers.’ Please feel free to e-mail this attachment as widely as you think is appropriate to those colleagues (in your network or organisation) whom you believe are capable and perhaps willing to carry out this critical task.

I thank you in advance for your co-operation. Kind regards,

Jelle Stoffers MD PhD,
On behalf of the Editorial Team,
Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of General Practice.
