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.
