ORCID Peer Review Activity Credit Now Available for AMS Reviewers
Reviewers for all AMS journals, BAMS, and Meteorological Monographs now have the option to credit the Review Activity section of their ORCID record with eligible completed reviews. To register for an ORCID iD or find out more, please visit here.
What do you need to do to choose this option?
When you submit a review, you will be asked to allow AMS to update your ORCID record to indicate that you completed a review:
To allow AMS to update your ORCID record: Select the Yes radio button.
To deny permission to update your ORCID record: Select the No radio button.
To make your selection the default for future reviews: Check the box.
You may also change your selected answer for reviews you complete later. The ORCID Reviewer Credit authorization form will be available for each review in your Completed Assignments folder, via the action link “ORCID Deposit Authorization”:
What will AMS do once you allow us to update your ORCID Review Activity Record?
AMS will deposit a record of your review activity with ORCID. Your ORCID record will then be credited with the Review Activity.
To maintain reviewer anonymity, AMS will:
- make review record deposits from our publications to ORCID in bulk, on a monthly basis
- include only the year the review was completed, and the journal name. Identifiers such as the month the review was completed, or submission titles, will not be included.
Note: AMS will deposit one record per submission (so if you contribute reviews to multiple revisions of the same submission, you will be credited once). For papers submitted on December 27, 2019 or later, when you submit a review you will be asked to allow AMS to update your ORCID record to indicate that you completed a review.
