The AJE helping researchers through the academic journey

What does RQE aim to accomplish?

Our review process is designed to recognize reviewers for their contributions to the literature and to improve the speed of peer review to make communication faster, fairer, and more useful.

Make communication faster

Traditional peer review is a slow process. We typically return reviews in 11 days.

Make communication fairer

We invite reviewers based on their expertise without regard to their country of residence or origin and currently work with individuals from over 100 unique countries. We pay a small honorarium for each review completed, and we aim to return reviewer comments to the authors of each manuscript within days. Most of our reviewers (>70%) provide positive feedback after participating in our review process; we’ve shared a comment from one of our reviewers below.

Make communication more useful

We’re committed to helping you succeed.

This is a novel approach to the peer-review process because reviewers are compensated for their time. I get countless requests daily and having my time valued is very important.
