Remove years from public profile

It would be nice to have the option to remove year-journal associations from the public profile, to increase anonymity.

Hi Anna,

This is interesting to hear.  We removed months reviewed from this view some time ago in order to increase anonymity but have not heard that the year could also compromise your anonymity.  We will discuss and in the mean time you can hide your reviews if you are very worried.  Read more here.

I second Anna's request. Showing which year I reviewed for a journal compromises anonymity more than I am comfortable doing. I would like to be able to show the journals I've reviewed for without the years. Otherwise Publons becomes basically useless for me.

Thanks Stephen.  I will follow up your request via email.
