Authors of papers published in eCM should be available to review for eCM. The rationale behind this is that your peers have volunteered their time to bring your work to publication, hence, we expect all our authors to also review for eCM.

Application to review for eCM

eCM realizes that our expert reviewers greatly contribute to eCM success and that the rigorous review system directly impacts the quality of the journal we publish. eCM initiated a transparent review process in 2000 (now known as open peer review), including a merit-based transparent route to becoming a member of the eCM International Review Panel. eCM reviewers are openly named to the authors (unless differentely requested) and their questions are published as an integral part of the publication in the "Discussion with Reviewers" section, initiated in 2000.

eCM is an open and transparent journal. After 8-10 well-rated timely reviews for eCM (based upon speed, relevance and quality), you can apply to join the International Review Panel. Just email the Editor-in-Chief and he will check with eCM Scientific Editors if you qualify to join.

If you want to review for eCM and possibly join the International Review Panel in future, please register at and click create account on the top right hand corner. Once you have completed this along with keywords, please send a 2 page CV to ecm at along with the list of keywords that may be passed onto all eCM Scientific Editors to know that you are keen to review for eCM.
