People interested in peer reviewing

  • You can add me to the list of peer reviewers. I'm a neurologist specialized in Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology and have a MSc in Clinical Trials. I can review any papers in those areas, including methodological papers. Carlos Muniz (discusscontribs) 23:14, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
Great to hear back from you. Will let you know once we have a submission waiting to be reviewed. -Diptanshu.D (discusscontribs) 13:25, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Please let me know if there's any submission related to anatomy or neuroscience.--Athikhun.suw (discusscontribs) 06:15, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
Absolutely Athikhun.suw, I will let you know then. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 10:00, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
  • would like to peer review most anything (molecular biology, in particular)....(anonymously, is that possible?)--Ozzie10aaaa (discusscontribs) 17:24, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
Good to hear that, Ozzie10aaaa! Yes, it is possible to review anonymously. With the current system is that you then email the peer review. Do you agree that you fulfill the peer reviewer criteria? If so, I'll let you know when there's a fitting submission. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 09:25, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
yes "I fulfill the peer reviewer criteria", by research (M.Sci. and B.S.),.. additionally I can inform more via email--Ozzie10aaaa (discusscontribs) 10:43, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Great! Please also state if you fulfill the criteria, as I now added at top. Otherwise, I assume geriatric medicine is your main field of expertise. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 18:37, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
I fulfill the peer reviewing criteria. I am willing to review in internal medicine, geriatric medicine, medical education and history of medicine.

The inspiration for the peer review guidelines was mainly from Guidance for peer reviewers by BMJ, as well as Peer Reviewing for the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 19:50, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Peer reviewing and credit

I've only just come across this project due to the Signpost article. I think it's fascinating. Just a quick note which may be of interest to the editors. Currently, this page says "Peer reviewers can choose to be anonymous or non-anonymous to the public. Being non-anonymous allows the peer reviewer to use the contribution as an academic merit, but can possibly prevent the peer reviewer from freely criticizing the work due to fear of appearing to discredit one or more authors." There is actually another way that peer reviewers can get credit for peer reviewing, and that's through using Publons. Beyond having my own account, I'm not familiar with how Publons works, but perhaps steps could be taken to ensure that peer reviewers on Wikiversity journals could gain recognition on Publons for this work, if they haven't already?

Thanks, J Milburn! I will bring this up with the board - I definitely think it is worth mentioning to prospective (and past) peer reviewers. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 10:05, 19 June 2016 (UTC)
