What people are saying

  •   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!

    Senior Lecturer, School of Chemical and Physical Sciences, Victoria University of Wellington
  •   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.

    Eugenia Fagadar-Cosma
    Senior Researcher, PhD Supervisor, Coordinator of Organic Chemistry - Porphyrins Programme at Institute of Chemistry Timisoara of Romanian Academy
  •   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.

    Timothy R Angeli
    Research Fellow - Auckland Bioengineering Institute, The University of Auckland
  •   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.

    Daniel Montesinos
    Researcher - Centre for Functional Ecology, Universidade de Coimbra
  •   Paper review is one of the most important contributions that a researcher can do for the academic society. With Publons, one's reviewer activity can be known not only by himself/herself, but also other people worldwide, and this could be an added incentive for a researcher to continuously contribute to his/her field. Thank you very much for bringing Publons to us.
