A degree alone is not going to get you a job. You must know what you want, be passionate about it, and then pursue it relentlessly. Don’t accept no for an answer. Be persistent. You’ll need talent, of course, but you’ll also need a good education and persistence. You must be able to set yourself apart from the competition. Start by learning more about available programs and request information from a variety of journalism schools and degree programs.

The Platform offers reviewers a personalized profile page, documenting their reviewing history. If a reviewer has completed at least one review in two years, they become a ‘Recognized Reviewer’. ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ status is awarded to those who belong to the top 10th percentile in terms of the number of completed reviews for a specific journal in two years. Editors can also hand pick reviewers and award them with a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and other perks.
Reviewers can download review certificates, end of year review reports and electronic badges via the Platform. Reviewers can also volunteer to review for their favorite Elsevier journals.
