There are two main ways to easily add your past reviews to Publons, through "past review uploads" for partnered journals and via

Past review uploads

"Past review uploads" is what we call it when a partnered journal sends us a large batch of review information in one go.  Where the submitting reviewer's email address matches a verified email address in our database we will invite that user to add the review to their profile.  If that user has selected "Automatically add reviews for partnered journals" we will add those reviews automatically without any confirmation from the user being required.

Selecting "Automatically add reviews from partnered journals" in your review settings and adding and verifying all the email addresses you have previously used to submit reviews to journals is the best thing to do to make sure you're ready to take advantage of "past review uploads".

NOTEDon’t worry if your profile doesn’t update immediately. We check for missing reviews periodically, so if we find one of yours, it may appear after a few weeks time. We typically look back five years, but where possible, will search as far back records are available.

You can send receipts for your past reviews to and these reviews will be added to your account.
