Peer reviewing plays an important role in the academic publishing process that scrutinizes and provides feedback on the scientific work prior to publication. Peer-reviewers put their efforts in reviewing others research work voluntarily, without any expectations of incentives or rewards. The peer-review process has been criticized for its defects like slowness, bias and abuse of the process. In this paper, we present a model to address these issues by using the approach of recording peer-review data on the blockchain. By using the semantic web and linked data technologies, this system would be able to expose its data and interact with other systems. This system will be used to quantify, recognize and incentivize the peer-reviewing efforts by researchers.
