ORCID: Connecting Research and Researchers

Peer Review Data

The Peer review section of your ORCID record is for information about your individual peer review contributions. The organization for which you are carrying out the peer review or evaluation will typically request your iD during the review submission process, as well as ask for permission to update your ORCID record after you complete the review. 

This can be done by the organizer of the review or evaluation, such as a publisher, society, funder, or research institution, or it can be done by a third-party review recognition service, such as Web of Science*, which works with review organizers to recognize your reviews.

In both cases, in order for your ORCID record to be updated, you will need to verify your iD by signing into ORCID and granting the review organizer or third-party recognition review permission to update your ORCID record with information about your review contribution.

The peer review section will not appear on your personal (private) ORCID record until a trusted organization has added a review to your ORCID record. You must make the review activity visible to everyone in order for it to also display on your public ORCID record.


*Previously known as Publons, now called Web of Science Reviewer Recognition System.
