Upgrade to Publons Pro for as little as $5 per month

At Publons, we put the researcher FIRST! We’ve made this a central goal from day one. That’s why Publons has always been completely free for researchers & why we will continue to provide our core services for free.

With that in mind, there is a lot of work involved in running the home of peer review, so we're now offering Publons Pro, a premium service where you choose what you pay to get a little extra out of Publons. We will continue to bring you the most authentic experience, putting your needs first.

We appreciate your support!

  • "I am touched by this gesture from Publons. It's a great motivation for all the reviewers like me to do more."
    Dr Pradeep M Muragundi
    Assistant Professor-Selection Grade - MCOPS, Pharmacy Management, Manipal University
  • 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

  • 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
  • It is a fantastic tool for any researcher, but especially so for those of us who come from countries where external verification is absolutely essential to get credit for anything we do.
    Jorge González Alonso
    Researcher, Linguistic structures, University of Tromsø
  • I have served on my university’s promotion committees over many years. I also regularly offer external critique for tenure panels for several international research institutions. Peer review activity is an important criteria for demonstrating an individual’s standing, engagement and contribution to their global academic community. This is always a very difficult activity to assess but with the advent of Publons, there is now scope to capture the depth and breadth of an individual’s contribution. I believe this verified peer review evidence is helpful for all academic researchers, especially those who are seeking career advancement.
