AIP Publishing has announced that reviewers of AIP Publishing journal articles can now record their efforts through ORCID. Peer review is at the heart of the scholarly publication process, but because it is traditionally ‘blind’ – meaning the author does not know who the reviewer is – it is difficult for reviewers to receive credit for their work. Through the integration with ORCID, reviewers of AIP Publishing journals will now be able to record when they complete a review for a journal, while maintaining strict confidentiality as to which article they have reviewed.
Reviewers can get credit for their activity with a simple click of a button within their regular reviewer workflow. The corresponding record in their ORCID profile will indicate the specific journal they reviewed for without revealing the manuscript title or authors names. The ability to claim a reviewer record has been implemented across the AIP Publishing journal portfolio, including publishing partner titles that use the PXP manuscript tracking system.
