Peer reviewers play a vital role in the process of disseminating scientific knowledge through article publications.  The process of reviewing full length Original Research and Review manuscripts for publication requires specific skills and knowledge, both in terms of medical and scientific expertise and in the ability to assess a manuscript. Engaging in the review process may require the physician reviewer to learn new skills or fortify existing expertise in order to complete the review process effectively.

Peer reviewers that complete reviews on time and judged as satisfactory by the journal editor team responsible for the manuscript will be eligible for CME credit. Each reviewer may claim credit for one eligible review per journal per month.

Guidelines and recommendations for peer reviewers can be found on our Reviewer Resources page.


The AHA designates each eligible completed review form in Circulation, Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, Circulation Research, Hypertension, Stroke, Journal of the American Heart Association, Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging, and Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions, Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, Circulation: Genomic and Precision Medicine, Circulation: Heart Failure, and Stroke: Vascular and Interventional Neurology for a maximum of 3 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The AHA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
