IGI Global Announces New Award Recognizing Outstanding Journal Reviewers

By IGI Global on Jan 4, 2024

Hershey (USA) - IGI Global, a leading international academic publisher, is pleased to announce the launch of its new "Reviewer of The Year Award" sponsored by IGI Global's Open Access Journal Program. This award recognizes the valuable contributions of IGI Global's journal editorial board members and is presented annually to the top reviewers (editorial review board members and associate editors) across IGI Global's 200+ scholarly open access journals.

All editorial board members (editorial review board members and associate editors) for IGI Global journals who are actively performing reviews in a quality and timely fashion are eligible for nomination. Performance is measured based on the volume of completed peer reviews, the quality of peer reviews, and the timeliness of completion. Reviewer performance is tracked and documented through dashboards in IGI Global's proprietary eEditorial Discovery (eED) manuscript management and review system. The top editorial review board member and the top associate editor from each of IGI Global's three major subject areas: Business & Management; Scientific, Technical, & Medical (STM); and Education are awarded the honor.

In academic publishing, reviewers are essential to the peer review process, as they ensure that the quality and integrity of research is upheld. It is IGI Global's hope that this award program will foster a culture of ethical peer review, emphasizing commitment and diligence in academic scholarship, while also providing well-deserved recognition to highly active
editorial board members.


"We wish to recognize the incredible work our reviewers provide on a voluntary basis and seek to exemplify those who have demonstrated excellence in the timeliness of the review, the quality of the evaluation, and their commitment to ethicality," states Ms. Melissa Wagner, Vice President of Editorial at
IGI Global.

This award program joins IGI Global's long list of reviewer benefits, which includes open access processing charge discounts, Web of Science and ORCID review recognition/verification, COPE resources, letters of recognition, among others. More information on IGI Global's double-anonymized peer review process can be viewed here.
