National ambassadors



We are thankful to our national ambassadors. They share our belief that the role of peer reviewers should be better recognized and have fully supported this project: as Ambassadors they are actively engaged in promoting the activities of ReviewerCredits in their own country. If you are also interested to become an Ambassador in your country, contact us to join a lively group of peers and receive first hand information quarterly.
