If you'd like to follow any activity surrounding your papers you can add them via the publications page of your private dashboard. This will provide you with an easy overview of any:

  • Pre- or post-publication peer reviews
  • Publons Scores
  • Comments for your papers on Publons  
  • Altmetric scores. 


Adding your publications:


There are two ways to add your publication to Publons, both of which are shown in the video below and accessible via your publications page.


Once on your publications page, you can simply enter the publication title or another identifier into the text fields provided then hit 'Add.' 


You can also import all of your Publications from your ORCiD account by selecting 'Import from ORCiD' from this same page. Note that we can only import information that is publicly available.

Matching authors to publications:


When you add a publication you are an author of, we try to match you to one of the authors we have listed for that paper as returned by CrossRef.  At times that data is incomplete and we will be unable to match you to an author.  When this happens you will see a red icon as below.  Get in touch with us to sort out the underlying data.

You can also follow papers you did not author from your followed publications page.


Display preferences: 


Adding your publications also allows you to set display preferences for reviews of any of those papers.  Click on the progress column alongside each paper to navigate to the review display preferences for that paper.  You may choose to either allow or disallow the display of reviews of that paper.  You can also set these preferences for all your papers at once from your publication settings.  Your preferences may be overridden if another stakeholder (journal or reviewer) has a more restrictive policy.
