  • My Head of Department gave me specific feedback on two aspects of my [promotion] application. One was my teaching, the other was my Publons profile. It really stood out that someone could verify what I had done in terms of peer review. Needless to say that my Head of Department is a physicist, so he likes evidence!

  • It is one of the best professional interactions. Publons helped me to evidence my work as a reviewer and to be proud of it. I am grateful for it, because my effort was minimal and your team has done this amazing work.

  • Publons is a perfect way to keep a validated track-record of contributions as a reviewer. This is a great way to keep my reviewer activity organised and documented for academic documents like CV and promotion applications.

  • The easiest and most trusted way to keep track of your contributions as a reviewer and editor. With Publons, instead of writing in my CV a long list of journals I have reviewed for, I just show a number for my Reviewer Merit and a link to my Publons profile.
