Reviewer Rewards Program
SETAC is delighted to announce the launch of the Reviewer Rewards Program. We publish high-quality research thanks to the diligence and keen eye of the journals’ editorial board members and reviewers, who have helped shape book chapters and journal articles. Reviewing manuscripts can be time consuming, and there is often little tangible reward for the work. It is seen as a “pay it forward” labor since reviewers themselves benefit from the process of peer-review when they are authors. We would like to recognize that effort by offering a points system that tracks individual contributions to the SETAC publications.
The structure is as follows:
1 point per completed review1
5 points: SETAC store products up to $50 (points are relinquished)
10 points: SETAC membership; recognition by SETAC2 with photo and a professional web link
30 point: Complimentary meeting registration (must register during early registration); recognition by SETAC2 with photo and a professional web link
50 points: One-time meeting registration, one-time annual membership, a $500 travel voucher (airline or hotel gift card to offset costs, for example); recognition by SETAC2 with photo and a professional web link; recognition at an annual meeting
1 A completed review is one that is thorough and has been returned to the editorial office in a timely manner. The commentary to the authors should be helpful and insightful. The length of the review is not as important as the quality of the review, which will be determined by the handling editor.
2 Recognition by SETAC could be through an article in the SETAC Globe, recognition on the website or through a special article in either of the SETAC journals.
