We recognize that peer review is a time-consuming process and are indebted to our talented pool of reviewers who help to ensure that we publish the best clinical science in gastroenterology and hepatology. We are now proud to offer a multifaceted approach to reviewer appreciation.

The Value of ACG Membership

Starting in 2023, reviewers who complete at least 5 high-quality reviews for AJG in a calendar year will receive a waiver for their ACG membership fee (current value of $325 USD).

The ACG Credentials Committee reviews applications for Membership, International Membership and Advancement to Fellowship quarterly. A fee waiver is not an approval for membership. Associate, Advanced Practice Provider and Resident/Trainee applications are reviewed every two weeks. View our membership page for more information. All ACG memberships run from January 1 to December 31 each year, regardless of the time of year that you join.

Public Acknowledgement
