Once you have added some peer reviews to your Publons profile a Metrics tab will be accessible on your profile. This section of your profile does not have to be shown, you can toggle it on or off from your profile settings.


Your “Review metrics” shows a variety of metrics related to your peer review activity.  All of these can be compared to any research field in our database by entering it in the field available.

  • “Verified reviews” is repeated from your profile card

  • “Verified reviews (last 12 months)” is the number of your verified reviews which were performed in the last 12 months.

  • “Review to publication ratio” is calculated using the total number of peer reviews and publications you have added to your profile.

  • “Verified editor records” is the total number of verified editor records you have added to your profile.

  • “Verified editor records (last 12 months)” is the number of your verified editor records which relate to manuscripts published in the last 12 months.

  • "Reviews per month" is a graph showing the number of verified reviews you have completed either per-month or cumulatively on a month-by month basis.

  • “Average word count” is a graph showing the average word count among reviews for which you have added the review content.  You can add review content on each review’s edit page.
