When clients need a particular expertise, we first look for experts already in our database. If none or not enough exist, we recruit experts based on published and recognized expertise.
Serving as a peer reviewer on SciPinion was a rewarding experience. The science I was asked to review was of high quality, the website was easy to work with, and the level of compensation appropriate for my efforts. I would serve as a peer reviewer again.
Thank you for all the feedback that you gave during the selection process. I must say that is not every day that you see such a good professionalism. Congrats! I also would like to express my interest on the position, in case one of the selected members are not able to complete their review.
I participated in the SciPinion review #69 and I wish to convey my experience working with SciPinion. Organization of the entire scientific review process was excellent. In addition, the process of contracting, communication and payment was efficient and prompt. Altogether SciPinion is doing in my mind a great job.
I was impressed by how well this digital process worked. I liked the efficiency and effectiveness without sacrificing quality (ie ensuring appropriate expertise/knowledge base for a balanced perspective, rounds of vetting, and anonymity of participants so as to reduce bias/influence). Also, any key issue to the review of the science can be vetted among the participants. Also, Scipinion staff were quick and helpful to responding to my questions.
We strive to pay experts within 24 hours of when you finish an assignment. We are currently averaging 30 minutes for payments when experts finish during normal business hours.
Yes, you will have to sign a contract if you are selected for a paid assignment. You may also have to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
We never solicit money from our experts. There is no cost for creating an account or applying for a paid assignment. We only pay experts.
We always advocate for our experts to remain anonymous throughout an assignment. For these, your identity will never be disclosed. For some assignments, the client has decided that the experts’ identities must be disclosed. In which case you will know before applying and if anonymity is important to you, then you can choose not to apply.
