Publons Reviewer Connect solves three problems: Finding peer review candidates, screening candidates’ fitness-for-purpose, and reliably connecting with preferred candidates. Here’s how each of these steps work:


Find - Powerful and accurate search

Our powerful proprietary algorithm trawls the carefully curated Web of Science publication and citation index, and Publons' exclusive cross-publisher peer review database to return a ranked list of up to 30 potential reviewers, matched to your search inputs, from over 7-million authors. 


Screen - 360° view of review candidates

Publons Reviewer Connect surfaces more of the information needed to screen peer review candidates. Simply click on a suggested reviewer to reveal a rich 360° profile, including: publication, peer review, and editorial history, flags for potential conflicts of interest, biographic information, keywords, institutional affiliations, and links to external sources. 


Connect - Reliably contact prospective reviewers

Publons Reviewer Connect provides a researcher’s latest contact email address from Web of Science, as well as one-click access to trusted sources for contact information, including:
