Award and acknowledgments for the reviewers of SCIndeks Assistant journals established
CEON/CEES’s main motivation for introducing the Award and the Acknowledgment is the desire to improve the quality of peer review and, consequently, the quality of the papers published through SCIndeks. At the same time, our inteniton is to encourage the responsible regulatory bodies in Serbia to address the reviewers’ contribution in the legal documents regulating the assessment and promotion of researchers.
The Reviewer of the Year Award consists of a diploma and a monetary ward, whereas the laureates of the Outstanding Reviewer Acknowledgment are awarded a diploma. Only the reviewers of the manuscripts submitted to the journals using SCIndeks Assistant as the journal management platform (Professional Package) may take part in the competition, as only this platform provides a tool for the assessment of reviewers (Reviewing Reviewers).
There is no standard call for nominations. By submitting a peer-review report to a SCIndeks Assistant journal, a reviewer is automatically assessed, ranked and nominated for the Award/Acknowledgment.
Details about the terms, criteria and procedures for awarding the Award/Acknowledgment are given in CEON/CEES’s Rulebook on the Reviewer of the Year Award and the Outstanding Reviewer Acknowledgment.
