The Infectious Diseases Society of America offers category 1 CME credit for reviewing manuscripts. Only reviews received on time and judged satisfactory by the Editor(s) responsible for the particular manuscript will be eligible for CME credit. We only provide CME credit to reviewers if they request CME credit at the time they complete their review.
The features that contribute most importantly to the quality of manuscript reviews for the Journal include: adherence to reviewer guidelines, specificity and accuracy, completeness, usefulness of recommendations to both editors and authors, tone, internal consistency, and mindfulness of the needs of our readers and the medical community as a whole.
To prepare a high quality review, the reviewer should consider existing evidence when preparing his or her comments. The reviewer should place the current work in the context of existing evidence in the area, describe the unique contributions of the current work, and comment on any inconsistencies of the current work with previous research in your area.
You will be notified via email if your review of the assigned manuscript was completed on time and if it met our criteria for CME credit.
The Infectious Diseases Society of America is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. IDSA designates each manuscript review for a maximum of 3 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Physicians are eligible for up to 3 CME credits for each manuscript review, up to a total of 15 per year.
