Recognition for Reviewers

A reviewer’s input to the editorial process is invaluable, and as publishers, we seek to recognize the efforts of reviewers.

The ways reviewers currently receive recognition varies from journal to journal, and can include:

  • Being included in a journal’s annual list of reviewers, typically in the year’s first or last issue. This is the most common form of recognition
  • Receiving complimentary online access to the journal, or package of journals, for a specific time period
  • Getting a letter or certificate of contribution from the journal editor

Getting recognition when you peer review with Wiley journals

  • Build your profile on Publons
    Publons records your reviewer activity as a measurable research output, and ensures that you get credit each time you complete a peer review.
  • Make sure you register for an ORCID iD and link it to your Publons account
    You can opt-in to have Publons automatically export your review history to your ORCID profile.
  • Claim Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for your review activity

    When reviewing for select Wiley Journals in the health sciences, you can elect to receive CME credits approved by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
