Get recognition for your effort

On this page: Reviewer activity report | Reviewer thank you | External recognition platforms

We value the work that all peer reviewers contribute to scientific progress, and are especially grateful to the reviewers contributing to the Nature-branded journals.

Reviewer activity report

We provide official reports of reviewing activity for all of our reviewers. If you would like to obtain a report of your reviewing activity, follow these steps:

  1. Log into the journal’s manuscript tracking system.
  2. Click the ‘My Springer Nature Account’ link at the bottom of the page.
  3. Locate the ‘Manuscripts’ tab.

From that tab, you will be able to download a copy of your reviewing activity, which you can use to demonstrate your contribution to the scientific community with your funders, for example. If you have any trouble or if you need proof of reviewing activity in a different format, contact our journal here.

Reviewer thank you

Reviewers who submit a report for three or more manuscripts across Nature, the Research Journals and the Review Journals in a calendar year will be eligible for a digital complimentary subscription to Nature. Information about claiming this subscription will come via email early in the following calendar year.

To ensure that you receive this notification, we recommend that you merge any duplicate profiles, use only one email address for all Nature Research reviewing activity, and update the email address in your profile if your affiliation changes. If you think you might have multiple accounts, contact Platform Support with any email addresses and names you might have used; they can help you merge your accounts.

If you have not received a notification and you would like to claim your subscription offer, write to our main reviewers’ email box.


Springer Nature is committed to recognizing the valuable and critical role performed by peer reviewers.

We strongly encourage our reviewers to obtain an ORCID account and link it to our manuscript tracking system to make the attribution of credit more transparent. More information on how to do that can be found here.

Reviewer reports for the Nature journals are not automatically integrated with ORCID, Publons or other external recognition websites; however, if you find these websites useful, we encourage you to add reviews you conduct for us to your profile on such platforms. Before you post, check with the editor about what can be included in the record owing to confidentiality restrictions.
