Reviewing manuscripts

Our journals depend on our bank of reviewers to assess the quality and usefulness of the 47,000 manuscripts we receive each year.

If you would like to volunteer, please register your details on our submission system, which can be accessed via the website of the journal you have chosen. This process will automatically add your name and contact details to our database of reviewers.

For the best reviews (those that constructively critique the article and help editors assess its importance and originality) we offer, in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, up to 3 AMA PRA Category 1 Continuing Medical Education (CME) points.

To see what we ask of reviewers please read the ‘How to review’ section.

Sense About Science have produced a free guide for early career researchers, which you may also find useful.
