Frontiers and Clarivate partner on peer review service

Frontiers is partnering Clarivate on a new Reviewer Recognition Service, in an effort to to give peer reviewers greater recognition for their work. The service is made possible by a feature from Publons, acquired by Clarivate in 2017, and now an integral part of the Web of Science.

The Web of Science Reviewer Recognition Service allows reviewers to easily track, verify and record all their review and editorial contributions. By integrating the service into Frontiers’ Collaborative Review Platform, reviewers can also upload contributions automatically to their Publons profile.

‘Frontiers has always tried to pay tribute to those who handle and review manuscripts,’ says Gearóid Ó Faoleán, research integrity senior manager at Frontiers. ‘Working together with Clarivate, we can ensure the vital contributions made by authors, editors and reviewers are well acknowledged.’

Frontiers further stated that its peer review process would not be possible without its dedicated community of more than 100,000 reviewers and editors. It hopes the partnership with Clarivate will create a stronger research community and make the review process an easier and more rewarding experience.

The Reviewer Recognition Service will be rolled out to Frontiers’ journal series throughout 2020.
