Yes. Verification is not evaluation, it’s just proof that the review was performed. Publons is working on reviewer evaluation systems but believe this should be done in a positive way.


If an editor is asked to verify a review they believe was exceptional, they can endorse it at the same time (on Publons, an endorsement is a lot like an upvote).
