Serving as a peer reviewer is an engaging, immersive professional development opportunity that allows individuals to gain insight and knowledge from their colleagues in higher education. Peer Corps members also develop a comprehensive understanding of HLC’s accreditation requirements, which can help their home institution with the accreditation process.
Peer reviewers are volunteers who generously share their time and expertise to help colleges and universities advance their quality. Peer reviewers evaluate member institutions for adherence to HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation and offer consultative feedback that contributes to the quality of an institution’s processes and academic offerings. For more information about the peer reviewer role, see the Peer Corps Member Position Description and responsibilities and expectations of service.

WARNING: Instances of attempted or actual peer-review fraud, where authors knowingly nominate peer-reviewers which have an obvious competing interest, who contact or influence reviewers to submit reviews, or who assume false identities as “fake reviewers” will be treated as scientific misconduct, and we will reserve steps such as immediate rejection or retraction of already published manuscripts, and informing the host institution of authors about the attempted or actual misconduct.
Springer Nature is committed to recognizing the valuable and critical role performed by peer reviewers. We support your efforts by encouraging and enabling recognition of your peer review contribution. We issue peer reviewer verification certificates and also, for enabled journals, directly transmit credit for your peer review to ORCID and/or Publons.
Peer review is at the heart of the research process. Academics generously dedicate hours of their week to examine each other’s work, offer much-valued constructive criticism and improve the published article; helping us to transform it from a draft manuscript into the final version of record.
The host country can also hold a Peer Review meeting to gather expert advice from other countries to inform the process of preparation of a major policy reform (or new programme or institutional arrangement) in the field of social protection and social inclusion.

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation conducts the pre-selection of candidates for a research fellowship granted by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). The Foundation sponsors people, not projects. Consequently, the applicant’s own scientific qualifications should be the focus of your review.
By granting research fellowships, not only do we enable outstanding scientists and scholars to realise long-term research projects in Japan, but also offer ongoing support for academic collaboration with members of the Humboldt Network abroad. In addition to the expert reviews provided by the applicant, the Humboldt Foundation’s selection committee requires your independent peer review.
Our helpful peer review infographics guide you through each step of the process. We also demystify some of the peer review models you might encounter (e.g. single, double, triple, open, and collaborative) and explore their pros and cons.
Here you will find practical tips and guidance on all aspects of peer review. See how being a reviewer could benefit your career, discover what’s involved in shaping a review, and learn some top writing skills.
