Writing scientific articles and reviewing articles of colleagues can be tedious and time-consuming. And very often, there is little direct feedback. In the last years, I have reviewed at least 20 articles in various scientific journals.

Therefore I was very pleasantly surprised when I opened my emails today and was informed that I had been awarded a certificate in recognition for my contributions as a peer reviewer by the scientific journal „Human Reproduction Update“. This certificate is only awarded to the top 10% of all reviewers.
