You can automatically add reviews from partnered journals! To have these reviews automatically added simply follow these steps:

  1. Check the box on the review submission form asking if you want to add a record of the review to Publons*

  2. Follow the link in the confirmation email we send you

  3. Done - the review record will be added to your profile subject to the journal's privacy policy.

We send you a confirmation email on purpose to make sure we never collect review records from people who accidentally checked the box in the review submission form.


We make this two-step process even easier. Simply turn on the 'Automatically add reviews from partnered journals" setting in your review settings. With this setting enabled, you just need to check the box in the review submission form and you're done! Now all reviews you do for partnered journals moving forward will be automatically added to your profile. With participating journals and publishers we also periodically (and securely) check for past (historic) review records.  When we can match an unclaimed review with an expert on Publons, we can automatically add that review to their profile.


* This option appears in the peer-review submission system the journal uses, such as ScholarOne or Editorial Manager.

Past reviews

In addition to the above process for adding contemporaneous reviews, you can add reviews you've completed for partnered journals.  Read here for more information: How can my past reviews be added to Publons?
