ReviewerCredits is the first and only cross-publisher reward and recognition platform. This includes a unique suite of performance and quality metrics which measure peer review and academic activity for peer reviewers and journals based on reviewed and published manuscripts. We offer our unique Reviewer Contribution Index (RCI), journal rankings, article citations, scientific impact, enrolled training courses, and more. We also provide the first and only peer-review certification standards to ensure the integrity and sustainability of quality publishing.
Thousands of researchers worldwide use ReviewerCredits to gain recognition for their academic profiles and to reward their peer review efforts. Thousands of editors also use ReviewerCredits to recognise and reward their peer reviewers as well as to access and engage the global community of certified reviewers who have proven expertise. In order to prevent fake accounts and to ensure the integrity of publications, we conduct biometric and academic verification of our users. We are the first KYC solution in the world of science.

ReviewerCredits was born in 2016 thanks to an idea and the friendship of two early career researchers, Giacomo Bellani and Robert Fruscio. These friends contributed to scientific research by participating in the peer review process at the time, like millions of scientists worldwide. Over the course of their experiences as peer reviewers, they found themselves faced with the lack of recognition and reward for their efforts despite the fact that peer review is a crucial part of the publication process for scientific journals and publishers.
ReviewerCredits is now a fully independent platform, not belonging to any publishing group. ReviewerCredits recognises, rewards, and certifies the work of peer reviewers, offering them and journals a number of free and paid subscription services. In 2022, Dr Sven Fund took responsibility for ReviewerCredits: Sven is convinced that peer review must be part of the academic record and that there must be ways for journals to legitimately and ethically reward academics for carrying out this community service.
