AIP Publishing is pleased to announce 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 this 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’ve reviewed.
“We are grateful to all our reviewers who give so generously of their time and expertise to help authors improve their manuscripts and help editors decide if an article should be published,” noted Jason Wilde, chief publishing officer of AIP Publishing. “The ORCID reviewer recognition service allows us to recognize the invaluable contribution that reviewers make to our publishing enterprise and give credit where it’s due.”
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.
ORCID’s vision is a world where all who participate in research and innovation, from imagining to building and managing, are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, and borders, and time. ORCID provides an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research and innovation activities. ORCID provides open tools that enable transparent and trustworthy connections between researchers, their contributions, and affiliations. ORCID provides this service to help people find information and to simplify reporting and analysis. Learn more at https://orcid.org.
