  • Reviewer Acknowledgements

    A scientific journal’s greatest responsibility is to ensure that all contributions accepted for publication are rigorously but fairly reviewed.
    We gratefully acknowledge the valued support of the scientists who have reviewed papers throughout 2020.

    We work with Publons to give our expert peer reviewers official and seamless recognition for their contribution to research.
    Learn how you can add your peer reviews to your Publons profile here (https://www.springernature.com/gp/reviewers/publons).
    Our peer review system is also integrated with ORCID, allowing our reviewers to share their discoveries and receive recognition for their reviewer efforts.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
