My Elsevier Reviews Profile is a personalized page for Elsevier journal reviewers, documenting the last 5 years of their Elsevier journal peer review history. My Elsevier Reviews Profile is part of the Reviewer Recognition Platform, created to recognize and reward reviewers and provide visibility for the work they carry out that often seems to be taken for granted.
The RRP was created to collate and display review activities carried out by researchers. The platform awards reviewer statuses and provides perks related to the importance of the contribution of individual reviewers.
Upon inclusion of an Elsevier journal on the platform, reviewer profiles are created for the journalâ€™s reviewers. These reviewers receive an email from Elsevier with an encrypted hyperlink directing them to their profile. Each time a reviewer submits a new review they will receive an email with a link to their automatically updated personalized page.
4. I have also reviewed for non-Elsevier journals, how can I add this information to the Reviewer Recognition Platform (RRP)?
From the end of July 2015, reviewers can add reviews they have carried out for non-Elsevier journals to the RRP via their My Elsevier Reviews personal profile page. Here they can create a public profile page, called Reviewer page, which will have a unique URL based on their personally chosen username.
It's a start! We are running this as a beta project and began with approximately 40 Elsevier journals in 2014, with the view of rolling it out to all Elsevier journals within a year. By the end of 2015 we will have all Elsevier journals on the platform and you will then see all your reviews carried out for Elsevier journals.
On the RRP, you will be able to view your 5 year peer review history per Elsevier journal. In addition, you can put yourself forward to review for your favorite Elsevier journal(s) and benefit from discounts on the Elsevier WebShop and Elsevier Book store. There is also the possibility to download reviewer badges and certificates. A newly launched feature allows you to add reviews you have carried out for non-Elsevier journals and create a public profile page.
Discounts offered vary from 10-30% depending on the voucher provided.
Simply click on the certificate button under the journal review status details you wish to download a pdf certificate for.
To edit your contact details please go to Elsevier's submission system (ESS) and update your details there.
10. I have used different email addresses to review for different Elsevier journals, how can I change these details so they refer to one main email address?
You can make these changes in the Elsevier's submission system (ESS).
Your profile page will only be visible to you, unless you take the step to create your public profile page.
12. My profile is being created but I urgently need a reviewer certificate, can the process be speeded up?
Unfortunately, new reviewer profiles are only created once a month. If you are in need of a reviewer certificate while you are waiting for your profile to be created, please contact the journal publisher, who will ensure you are provided with an acknowledgement letter.
