Peer review certification and benefits | For Scientists
Performing peer reviews is a great service for the academic community and is crucial for the advancement of science. It is properly perceived as a moral duty, because it is the only way “good science” is recognised and published. However, an accurate and thoughtful peer review is a demanding job. It requires time and competence, other than honesty and passion.
There is no reason why the activity as peer reviewer should not be part of each individual resume.
Peer review certificate
When you enter a completed review or conference talk, we will ensure they have actually been completed. All your peer reviews will be certified by Editorial Offices of Journals, all conference talks will be certified by PCOs. We do not accept a “thank you” mail as a proof that a review has been performed, as these cannot be considered an undeniable proof. Nothing to do with the confidence we have in the honesty of our members: we want to be a trusted service. You file the claim in, we get it certified and confirmed.
Globally recognised certification
You can download from your account a PDF certificate document detailing all activities we have certified for you, showing all your completed reviews. All reviews are certified and this is why we cannot accept a “Thank you” email as a proofs that the review has been performed.
