In 2017 Prosthetics and Orthotics International received its highest ever Impact Factor. This was fantastic for the journal, and we saw a huge increase in the amount of papers submitted. We are so grateful to the people that review these papers – these reviews ensure that we maintain a high quality of published papers. The SAGE Reviewer Guide answers the questions that people may have about how to join the fantastic pool of reviewers that we have for this journal. All contributions are hugely appreciated.
At SAGE we are always looking at ways to give support and recognition to our reviewers. In light of this, SAGE have partnered with Publons.From the journals submission system, reviewers are asked if they would like to add their review to a Publons account. This offers reviewers a valuable service which makes it a lot easier to keep a record of the reviews that they have completed. This publicly verifies reviews and allows reviewers to get public recognition for their work, without breaking journal confidentiality, as there are no specific details about the paper. 472 of our SAGE journals are partnered with Publons and there are currently 420,000+ researchers on Publons.
