What is the FISITA Database of Reviewers?
FISITA delivers a sequence of highly successful, global events, and the Database of Reviewers is the list of specialised reviewers that we are expanding as part of the on-going development of these events. The database holds the details of those reviewers that have met our criteria and lists the areas of their expertise. A reviewer can be listed in more than one category.
What are the requirements for the Database of Reviewers?
