Why do we exist?

We believe that peer review will be at the heart of solutions to critical problems facing research, including:

  • fraud and methodological flaws in research;
  • inefficiencies slowing down scholarly communication; and
  • challenges demonstrating research impact and influence.

Peer review is the last, great, closed part of the research lifecycle. Publons is bringing transparency and recognition to peer review, creating a community of experts committed to a better, faster and more trusted research process.

Join our community today to get the recognition you deserve for your peer review efforts.

Publons is determined to give experts like you the recognition you deserve for helping to maintain trust in science and research. We do this in complete compliance with journal review policies and without compromising reviewer anonymity. By default, the content of the review will not be publicly displayed, and only the year of the review and the journal title will be shown on reviewer profiles. You may edit what is displayed for any review or opt out of the service at any time.
