Wiley now offers Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for peer review of manuscripts submitted to participating journals. Peer review is a vital component of the publishing process, often completed anonymously and voluntarily by the professional-in-practice with significant demands on their time including the need to regularly meet continuing education requirements. We are proud to provide a reviewer recognition service that officially acknowledges the learning already taking place within the act of peer review in a way that furthers education requirements to reward reviewers for their invaluable input.
As part of this service, materials are inserted into the peer review process allowing reviewers to complete a brief outcomes evaluation and request credit. The following month, the reviewer receives a credit certificate per original manuscript reviewed [note: credit claims for additional rounds of review are not awarded].
John Wiley and Sons, Inc. is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Participants will receive a certificate stating this program is designated for 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, a credit type also accepted by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American Academy of Physician Assistants for potential transfer (reviewers are encouraged to consult their professional licensing board for more information on applicability and acceptance of continuing medical education credit for this activity).

- A journal-branded page containing service information, reviewer resources, and instructions for claiming credit
- Inclusion of the journal in the Reviewer section of Wiley Author Services among titles offering the service.
- EEO updates including addition of educational outcome questions, reviewer invitation text, and reporting
