Publons is the only profile where you can track your publications, citation metrics, peer reviews and journal editing work in one place. It’s quick and easy to maintain, can be used as evidence of your research outputs, and provides valuable insights into your publication and review history. 


Your Publons profile is easy to maintain because it’s largely automated. Publons is powered by the Web of Science, ORCiD, and integrations with thousands of scholarly journals. That means we can automatically import or update:


  • All your publications from Web of Science, ORCID, or your bibliographic reference manager (e.g. EndNote, Zotero or Mendeley)

  • Trusted citation metrics based on the editorially curated Web of Science Core Collection, which includes more than 21,000 of the worlds best journals

  • Your verified peer review and journal editing history, powered by partnerships with thousands of scholarly journals.

It’s important to note that your verified review history is shown across all academic journals and selected funders without revealing any sensitive information about the manuscript or grant application.

Adding journal and conference reviews

Your journal reviews can be added automatically or manually, depending on your preferences and whether the journal is partnered with Publons. You can read a detailed explanation of how to add journal and conference reviews, here. Each option is quick and easy because we'll do the work behind the scenes to verify your review and get it added it to your profile.

Adding grant reviews


We have a different process for adding grant reviews to your profile due to the level of privacy involved in research grant and review data. You can read about adding grant reviews to your profile, here.
