For Reviewers

ERUDITUS is a contemporary publishing house created to advance scholarly publications free of unreasonable barriers, facilitating authors in publishing their papers without prejudice to scientific values and supporting reviewers in doing their valuable job.

We value our peers, we appreciate our authors. 

 

At ERUDITUS, we aim to be closer to both researchers and peers. We understand the importance of time for our authors, and we do our best to minimize the duration of the peer-review process without affecting the quality of the paper or its academic value. We also value the time our peers dedicate to providing papers with the appropriate reviews as quickly as possible.

Benefits for Reviewers

Our business model is based on an equilibrium between two sides of scholar community, i.e., authors and reviewers. 

We collaborate with highly qualified reviewers on a freelance basis, which guarantees a per-paper payment to our peers and fast reviews for our authors.   

Additionally, we provide our active reviewers with one free publication voucher per year and a reviewer certificate.

 

 

Requirements 

Reviewers willing to join our reviewer team must have peer-reviewed publications (preferably indexed in Scopus or Web of Science) within the applied research area within the last five years, and have a profile with Google Scholar, ResearchGate or a public page (personal/institutional), as well as ORCID.
