Rigorous peer-review is the cornerstone of high quality academic publishing. Over 97,000 scholars served as reviewers for MDPI journals in 2018. We are extremely appreciative of all those who made a contribution to the editorial process in this capacity. At the beginning of every year, journal editorial offices publish a list all reviewers’ names to express our gratitude. In addition, this year the “MDPI Top Reviewer Awards” are announced, to recognize the very best reviewers for their expertise, dedication, high quality, and timely review reports.
The “Synergies” (https://synergeies.com/) actively support the efforts of the student team “RadiNOx” for their participation in the “CanSatin Greece” competition, which is organized by “Spin” and is supported by the “European Space Agency”.
For this purpose, apart from the scientific support (by Asst. Prof. Dr.-Ing. S. Papaefthymiou), “Synergies” donated the necessary amount for the purchase of the materials to construct the satellite.
Communication & presentation actions are supported directly by “Synergies”.
