Editage will conduct a peer review training course for the members of ReviewerCredits via web-based training modules for young researchers and experienced reviewers. "We are delighted to partner with ReviewerCredits and this partnership gives the members of ReviewerCredits the unique opportunity to be on top of new developments in their field and expand their knowledge. Becoming a peer reviewer offers a great opportunity to interact with journal editors and fellow researchers in the field," said Clarinda Cerejo, Editor-in-Chief, Editage Insights.

ReviewerCredits is a unique platform that aims to reward the contribution of peer reviewers to the publication process via global recognition and tangible benefits. Individuals can file peer review claims for over 23,000 journals worldwide through ReviewerCredits. Each claim is verified prior to being added to the database, creating a highly reliable, globally available repository of reviewers along with their review history. Moreover, scientists can keep track of the talks given at conferences, which are indexed in the first unique database of this kind.

"We are excited to explore our collaboration with Editage. This is unique in many ways and this is the first time that we will be empowering the members of ReviewerCredits with the tools and knowledge that will help them in their career track. Many of our members are also active authors, and we are certain that they will gain from the easy access to manuscipt formatting and translation support services offered by the new platform. We are confident that this partnership will make a positive impact on the entire science communication landscape," commented Giacomo Bellani, Co-Founder, ReviewerCredits.



Published authors can sign up for either the basic or advanced course based on their level of exposure and expertise. While the basic course will help in gaining perspectives on how expert research methodologists and statisticians approach peer reviews, the advanced course will let the author deep dive and gain knowledge from the assessment and feedback modules of the course.

"Peer review plays an important role in upholding the high standards of science communication. With the comprehensive training course, we are laying a strong foundation to tackle global challenges related to peer reviews. We are certain that researchers will find the course interesting and insightful," added Cerejo.


Editage has served close to 371,000 researchers, doctors, and scientists across 191 countries and has transformed over one million papers across 1,200 disciplines. The partnership with ReviewerCredits is one of the many initiatives undertaken by Editage to improve the global science communication process.
