A journal’s health and performance depend on many factors, but few are as important as being able to expand and retain a pool of high-quality active reviewers. Increasingly, publishers are implementing peer reviewer training and mentorship programs to encourage overall engagement with the journal, while also giving reviewers some of the tools and knowledge they need to grow as effective peer reviewers. In this discussion with our partners at J&J Editorial, we will present case studies to show how publishers can leverage EM’s functionality to develop and retain reviewer talent.
