Your profile settings page grants you the ability to customise several aspects of your public representation on Publons.  Any changes you make on this page will not be reflected on your profile until you click the “Save changes” button at the foot of the page.

  • Profile photo: change the photo shown on your profile and in various other places on the site.  This is the canonical image we use to represent your profile on publication, journal, and institution detail pages and lists.

  • Full name: change the full name shown on your profile.  This name is also displayed in association with your profile on publication detail pages, as well as the researcher browse table.  Your full name on Publons is also used to search Web of Science when importing publications.

  • Alternative publishing names: add any names other than you “Full name” which you have published under in the past.  We use these names when searching Web of Science and when matching you to author metadata associated with your publications.

  • Tell us a bit about yourself: text entered here will be displayed on your profile in the “Bio” section.  We recommend using this section to expound on your research interests and history.  Entries can be no longer than 5000 characters.

  • Country/Region: this value is only used to filter the researcher browse table by country.

  • Research fields: enter the fields of research you are interested in and actively pursuing. Research fields are displayed on your profile and can be used to filter the researcher browse table. You can read more about these fields here.

  • Profile display: control some aspects of what can be seen on your profile. You can hide your metrics page from all visitors (you will still be able to see it).  You may specifically hide your h-index without hiding all of your other stats.  You may also determine the order in which publications will be displayed on your profile.
