Yes.  Any manuscript you read on arXiv, bioRxiv, preprints, engrXiv, or any other pre-print server is ripe for reviewing on Publons.


There are two ways you can do this, either

  • add your review through the post-publication review forms.  Some pre-print servers mint DOIs for their publications, if not you can add the paper by its title and then contact us to link it to the correct paper.
  • import the publication by it's unique identifier (e.g. a DOI or arXiv ID) through the search bar at the top of each Publons page, then click "Post-publication review".


We are still working on improving these workflows so if you have any feedback, please let us know!
