Benefits for Reviewers
Reviewers for our journal enjoy several benefits.
For each completed peer review, reviewer is eligible for a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charge (APC). The discounts accumulate, meaning that depending on the number of reviews completed, reviewer may qualify for a 100% discount on the APC.
For each manuscript reviewed, reviwer receives a Certificate of Reviewing. Moreover, every month, we recognize the best and most timely review with the Reviewer of the Month award, which we announce on our website, blog, and social media channels.
Reviewers with a solid academic track record may apply for membership on our Editorial Board after completing several reviews.
We also acknowledge reviewers by publishing an annual reviewer's list on our website every January.
Finally, reviewer's contributions are valued and recognized beyond our journal. Publons, an independent organization, provides recognition to reviewers for their peer review contributions to Biomolecules and Biomedicine.We appreciate your hard work and dedication to ensuring the quality of our journal's content.
