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 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 recoups it's costs by partnering with academic publishers. These partnerships allow reviews performed for cooperating journals to be automatically added to Publons profiles.
