How to register a peer review and gain credits
To register a peer review and gain credits on ReviewerCredits, begin by personalizing your profile and syncing it with your existing IDs and profiles like ORCID, SCOPUS, Researchgate, LinkedIn, and more for easy recognition and traceability. You can then claim completed reviews, either automatically from the past 20 years through your ORCID account or manually by providing journal details. Track the progress of your claimed reviews, with automated ones typically verified immediately, and manual claims verified within three working days. As you accumulate credits, you can redeem them for various benefits, including publishing discounts, editorial services, training courses, and more. ReviewerCredits provides a platform to boost your academic career while rewarding your valuable contributions to peer review.

Claim completed reviews automatically or manually

New reviews are automatically registered for journals which use manuscript submission systems integrated with ReviewerCredits. Otherwise, you can fill in and submit the claim form with journal title, editor name and email, completion date, manuscript ID, etc.
Track progress of your reviews claimed
Automatically registered reviews are usually verified immediately, whereas manually submitted claims may take up to three working days to verify with an editorial office.
