AJNR Teams with Publons to Give Credit for Peer Review
The American Journal of Neuroradiology is pleased to announce its new partnership with Publons. The Journal joins more than 100 other publications that are rewarding their reviewers through this innovative system that offers greater recognition for peer review. AJNR reviewers who opt-in to Publons will be able to make use of its features for peer reviewers, including tools to export their verified review activity to their resumé, stats and graphs to show their reviewing characteristics compared with others in their field, and the ability to link their Publons review record to their ORCID.
Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey S. Ross, who initiated the partnership, hopes reviewers will benefit from this acknowledgment of their invaluable contributions:
The reviewers of the AJNR are an amazing group of individuals who selflessly give of their precious time, knowledge, and experience to validate and improve each manuscript. Daily, I have had the privilege of seeing the wisdom of reviewers’ comments integrated into manuscript revisions to ultimately improve the science that we publish. While we cannot reward reviewers adequately for their efforts, we would like to make it easier for reviewers to track and catalog their reviewing history across all the journals to which they contribute. Towards that end, the AJNR has partnered with Publons as a method of getting credit for, and keeping track of your reviews.
Early results from the more than 100 journals that have joined the Publons platform have shown giving credit for peer review leads to more motivated reviewers and better reviews. For more infomation and details on how the partnership works, see the AJNR-Publons landing page.
