Keep your analytical skills sharp, receive public acknowledgement of your efforts and save money on publication charges!
BMJ Open is now reviewing articles for publication. Peer reviewing is a good way to hone your analytical skills and to get a ‘first look’ at forthcoming research. Our system of open peer review – publishing reviewers’ comments – provides public acknowledgement of your input. It is also helpful if you need to demonstrate your reviewing activity for continuing professional development purposes.
You can register as a reviewer at our submission site; once you have registered, drop us an email and let us know.
In recognition of your support, as a BMJ Open reviewer you will receive a 25% discount on article processing charges if you are the corresponding author of a paper submitted to the journal within a year of returning your review.
Our instructions for reviewers are here.
