Welcome to Issue 20 of Reviewers' Update. In this edition, we discover what the future holds for Elsevier's newly-launched Reviewer Recognition Platform. And we hear from the EES team which has compiled some useful tips based on common support requests. We also have several articles offering insight into researchers' views on the current peer-review landscape; these include an analysis of Elsevier survey results and a recent Sense About Science workshop for ECRs.

As always, if you have a story you would like to share or feedback on Reviewers' Update we would love to hear from you. You can email us at
