Peer Review Cycles - Straive’s Reviewer Selection Service

Reviewer Desk

The peer review process is indisputably the soul of scientific publishing as it ensures the scientific validity of scholarly publications. It begins with finding a suitable reviewer for the manuscript. Finding the right reviewers is one of the most challenging tasks, and having a dedicated team of experts to identify ideal reviewers can be a key enabler in the process.

Straive, a leading content solutions provider for STM publishers, built its Review Finder application to help find qualified reviewers by searching multiple citation databases. The application returns a list of potential reviewer names. Authorship, co-author, and institution affiliation details are considered to avoid any conflict of interest.

Straive provided Reviewer Selection Service as part of peer review administration support for a leading journal publisher. Straive worked collaboratively with the Client to establish success metrics.
