With a Publons Academy badge on your profile editors will be able to see that you have a peer review qualification when they are searching for reviewers on Publons. This along with publishing in your field, writing good reviews and publishing them openly on Publons, where the journal allows this, should give you the best chance of being invited to review a paper. You can also indicate that you are interested in reviewing for a particular journal by going to that journal’s profile page on Publons and clicking the blue button under ‘Interested in reviewing for this journal?’.  

Tips for if you'd like to receive review invitations:

  • Link your Publons profile to your published papers on ORCiD or ResearcherID (some journals require x number of publications of their reviewers)
  • Express interest to review for partner journals of Publons (they have a blue tick next to them)
