How ReviewerCredits works
The vast majority of scientific Journals uses the peer review process to select and prioritize innovative articles. It is a crucial job, which carries great responsibility and requires significant time and effort, generally unpaid and unrewarded. While several metrics have been developed to appraise and quantify the work of authors, articles and Journals, no metrics and no rewarding system exist to recognize and reward peer-reviewers performance.
ReviewerCredits fills this gap certifying, measuring and rewarding the activity of scientists as peer reviewers and conference speakers.
ReviewerCredits keeps a history of all reviews performed, assigns a ReviewerCredits Index and gives tangible rewards.
ReviewerCredits ensures trusted certifications for reviewers
Start by creating a reviewer account, then enter a claim for a completed review (or congress talk) on the platform: this information will be confirmed by the Journals for which you have offered your reviewer activity (and by the organizing institutions of the congresses in which you have been involved as a speaker).
You file the claim, ReviewerCredits gets it confirmed and certified, adds it to your personal profile and assigns virtual credits, which can be used to access the Reward Center’s selected services at discounted rates: tangible credits to be used in your day-to-day practice as author and researcher.
Each confirmed review will feed your Reviewer Index, a quantitative parameter relating to the peer reviews you completed. This is displayed on the website and is visible to our growing audience of Journals, Publishers, Peers and Institutions.
All your activities are included in your personal certificate – showcasing your activity in chronological order – recognized and appreciated worldwide.
A qualified reviewers database for Journals
We believe the reviewers’ reward process helps motivate their collaboration and, therefore, they may be more inclined to accept invitations and perform their reviews efficiently. In addition, all registered reviewers are profiled, contributing to a robust database of peer reviewers that licensed Journals can draw on.
Show your reviewers that you value their cooperation and give them the opportunity to make their reviews count. Engage scientists and reward your reviewers.
