Gain advantages from your peer reviews
In ReviewerCredits we want to provide a recognition to your peer reviewer activity with credits, useful for your daily practice as author and researcher.
It is a simple mechanism: the more you review, the more you earn credits.
Ask the Journal you are reviewing for to subscribe our plans to earn more credits!
Use your credits in the Reward Center
Once a review claim has been sent to a Journal, it will be visible in your personal area and it will be in the status Pending, Sent, Approved or Rejected.
Every time your claim is approved from a Journal, you earn credits automatically added to your profile. When you have earned sufficient credits, you can use them to obtain virtual coupons by our partners which will grant you discounts towards their services.
Discover your rewards
Your reviewer credits are always visible in your personal profile. Use them to claim discounted APCs at selected Journals for your next submission or one of the many other benefits included in Reward Center. The selected item will be automatically added to you cart.

ReviewerCredits mission is to fill the gap of peer review certification and rewarding. For this reason, we created reviewercredits.com web platform, fully dedicated to the certification, quantification and reward of the peer review process necessary to guarantee quality and authority in the peer review process. Besides peer review certificate, our platform offers to register reviewers a tangible recognition of their work in “virtual credits” that can be spent on our e-commerce store (Reward Center). Virtual monetisation of the peer review is a distinguish approach on the market and it has the goal to demonstrate that peer review counts. ReviewerCredits reward mechanism assigns credits to each peer review that has been certified and can be redeemed to purchase discounted subscriptions to scientific publications, to access the online training offer, to publish articles at favorable prices in Open Access, to get editing and translation services, to get gift cards and can also be converted into green credits to be donated to sustainability initiatives related to the concept of Sustainable Reviews.
It is a simple mechanism: more you review, more credits you earn to be redeemed in our Reward Center. If fact, ReviewerCredits assigns credits for each completed and certified review that you or the Journal are claiming for. Therefore, it is crucial to involve the Journal you are reviewing for in this virtuous cycle, inviting them to join us with a Free, Plus or Premium profile. You can get more credits if the Journal you are reviewing for is part of our Plus and Premium Plan: instead of 1 credit that is normally assigned, you get 5 credits for Plus Journals and 10 credits for Premium Journals.
Additional credits for inviting your colleagues
You can also gain additional credits by inviting your colleagues: as soon as your referral actually complete the sign-up process, 5 extra credits will be assigned to you. It is also a good way to share with your community an innovative service they might not be aware of.
Remind that your credits never expire. Just have a look to the different categories in the Reward Center and complete your order using your credits. Please check that you have sufficient amount of credit to redeem the preferred item or service, otherwise the order will fail.The amount of your credits is always visible by logging into your personal profile.
And if you have any suggestion, any other category, item or service you would like to have in our Reward Center, just email us!
