Author Feedback scores with seven or more points (out of a possible nine) are deemed ‘Excellent.’ In these cases you will receive an ‘Excellent Review’ badge next to the review record on your Publons profile.

Excellent reviews are also highlighted on your downloadable verified review record so you can include proof of how many of your reviews were deemed 'excellent' by editors and authors.

Note: Scored reviews that do not meet the requirements for excellence will not be indicated on your profile or displayed in any other public part of the site.

Exact scores are completely confidential. Written feedback is privileged between the editor and reviewer.
