Publons partners with SAGE to improve peer review

Today we're formally announcing a pilot partnership with leading academic publisher SAGE. The goal of the pilot is to assess the impact of reviewer recognition on the peer review process for participating SAGE journals. We are especially excited to see if giving SAGE reviewers credit on the Publons platform will lead to a higher acceptance rate for review requests, faster review times, and better quality review.

What this means for SAGE reviewers

When you review for participating SAGE journals (below) you will be given the option to get credit on Publons. Once your review is completed you will receive an email with a private link to claim your review, or, if you've already indicated on your profile that you'd like us to automatically add reviews from partnered journals, we'll add the review for you and notify you via email.

By default the review will be added with the manuscript title and review content hidden, but once the manuscript is published you may reveal additional details about your review according to the default privacy settings of the participating journals (as shown at the links below).

Participating journals

The journals participating in this pilot are:
SAGE Open
SAGE Open Medicine

For more details on the partnership and an up-to-date list of participating journals, see the SAGE info page on Publons. See also the SAGE Connection blog post about the partnership.
