According to my onion about to become the peer reviewer is that every new reviewer should  complete the profile and all information on the research supporting domains, as ORCID, researcher ID and Mendeley etc. And the more important to do contact with editors and provide them the updated information related to expertise and research era. Moreover, the colleague and seniors are the effective approach to help in becoming the peer reviewer.

One question here: must you have a PhD before you are eligible to peer-review? Many journals seem to do that. I call it academic discrimination, because I think there are lots of people out there who have massive work and field experience (especially in ecology) but they have a family to take care of, or they are not fortunate enough to have money to complete a PhD especially in countries where getting funding for PhD dissertation lies solely in the hands of the student. I wonder when journals will start to respect and appreciate the experience these folks hold!
