Reviewer Hub features

Reviewer Hub offers a range of features to support your work as a referee:

  • Manage peer review activities
    On Reviewer Hub, you can find information about your review invitations including the manuscript’s abstract, pending reviews, upcoming deadlines, and your review history across all Elsevier journals connected to EM. You can also access the decline or accept review links in Reviewer Hub and click through straight to the journal’s EM site to work on assignments from here (logging in with your EM username and password).
  • 30-day complimentary access to Scopus, ScienceDirect and other Elsevier products
    On the “Rewards” section of Reviewer Hub, you can claim your 30-day complimentary access to our products. You can claim this every time you accept a review invitation and can claim this up until six months after agreeing to review.
  • Reviewer certificates
    On the “Certificates” section of Reviewer Hub, you can download a "Recognized Reviewer" certificate for all Elsevier journals connected to EM for which you have reviewed.

  • Review history reports
    On the “Reports” section of Reviewer Hub, you can generate a customized reviewer report, listing all completed reviews within a set period. This can be particularly useful to include on CVs or when up for tenure.
  • Scopus profile
    On the “Scopus Profile” section of Reviewer Hub you can claim and connect your Scopus Profile to make sure your research profile in Reviewer Hub is always up to date. This will increase your visibility to our editors, for example when you have volunteered to review. If the connected profile(s) are not the right ones, you can disconnect them on this page.
  • Volunteer to review
    The “Volunteer to review” section on Reviewer Hub allows you to indicate interest to review for any Elsevier journal that is connected to Editorial Manager. Upon volunteering, you need to provide your research classifications (if the journal has a classification list) and your Scopus ID (or create one) so that editors will be able to assess your suitability. Editors will see reviewers that have volunteered to review via Reviewer Hub in Editorial Manager’s Find Reviewers tool so they can be easily invited.

  • Reviewer preferences
    In the “Review Preferences” section of Reviewer Hub, you can indicate your (un)availability and the maximum number of review invitations you would like to receive at any given time. Reviewers can set up their (un)availability for five different periods and up to six months in advance. Doing so ensures this information is available to journal editors across all Elsevier journals connected to Reviewer Hub.
