Editors

PeerJ wouldn't be possible without the tremendous effort of its editorial board. Editors are awarded with 35 to 100 contribution points for each final decision made.

Open reviewers

No peer-reviewed journal could exist without its reviewers. This is often a major contribution within academia that goes unseen. At the same time we believe more transparency will improve how we do research.

To date ~80% of all PeerJ articles have published their reviews and >40% of referees choose to sign a named review. To further encourage named reviews, any open reviewer is awarded 35 contribution points.

PeerJ authors

PeerJ is an open access peer-reviewed journal. We believe anyone choosing open access should be credited for that choice, which is why authors receive 100 points for every peer-reviewed publication. To encourage publishing of the peer-review history a further 35 points are awarded to authors making their review histories public.

Preprint authors

Preliminary knowledge shouldn't have to wait, that's why PeerJ started publishing preprints in addition to the formal peer-reviewed articles.

Authors choosing to publish preprints are doing all of us a favor that should be credited. Of course the preprint itself has a DOI and will be the major credit, but in addition PeerJ also awards 35 points for each preprint.

Feedback on Preprints

Similar to peer-review, informal feedback usually goes unnoticed to the wider world. We'd like to credit anyone giving valuable feedback on any published preprint. Preprint authors can choose to accept valuable feedback and anyone can upvote valuable feedback. When that happens contribution points are awarded to the feedback contributor.

Answered questions

Like informal feedback, answers to questions usually go unrewarded. StackOverflow established a new standard for giving credit to programmers with knowledge and to those seeking it. We very much borrowed from that concept to build out PeerJ's Q&A annotation system.

Anyone answering a question can receive credit, you don't need to be an author to ask or answer questions.

Asked questions

Questions are part of our annotation system. Often comments are actually structured as questions with an expectation that someone, not just an author, may have the answer.

Questions can be asked at the paragraph level on any peer-reviewed article, on any preprint, or standalone from any specific publication. These questions can then be searched as structured knowledge. PeerJ is looking to use emerging annotation standards to enable better reuse in the knowledge graph across the Web.
