Reviewer Certification

Knowledge is created through an interactive process where peer-reviewing plays a very critical role. Writing quality reviews is often as difficult as writing quality papers. While there are a plenty of opportunities for one to learn about writing and publishing papers, there are fewer opportunities for one to learn about reviewing academic work in a critical yet constructive manner.

We offer reviewer development workshops and provide certificates based on your experience and performance as a reviewer. As an EMS certified reviewer, you can reach out to journal editors and get actively involved in the broader academic community in your subject/geographic area. If you would like to become an EMS certified reviewer, please write to us (ems@em-society.org). Your credentials will be verified by the subject matter experts in your field, after which the EM secretariat will provide you with a certificate.
