I won a prize! Hurrah! I’m obviously very happy.
If you want to hear me answer a couple of questions and see the Peerage of Science crew engaged in some amusing video editing, look at the interview.
How did that happen? After being told, about a year ago to check out the peer review platform Peerage of Science, I decided to keep reviewing manuscripts that showed up and were relevant to my interests. Reading and commenting on unpublished manuscripts is stimulating, and I thought it would help improve my reviewing and, maybe, writing.
Maybe this is a testament to the power of gamification. I admit that I’ve occasionally been checking my profile to see what the score is even without thinking of any reviewer prize.
