About The Company

Publons was founded by Andrew Preston and Daniel Johnston in 2012 to address the static state of peer-reviewing practices in scholarly communication, with a view to encourage collaboration and speed up scientific development. The world's researchers now use Publons to keep track of their publications, citation metrics, peer reviews and journal editing work in a single, easy-to-use profile.

The Publons name is an homage to the "publon", the "minimum unit of publishable material".

Publons was acquired in 2017 by Clarivate Analytics — the global leader in trusted insights and analytics that accelerate the pace of innovation.

Publons also partners with academic publishers to provide peer review solutions designed to bring greater transparency, efficiency, quality, and recognition to their peer review processes.
