Publons Peer Review Awards are back for 2017 to honor the heroes of peer review.

Why Sentinels? Because peer reviewers are the unsung guardians of science and research, keeping watch over the quality and integrity of scholarly communication. Thanks to their critical eye and devotion to sound research, we continue to expand the sphere of human knowledge.
