Users of other Clarivate Products 

Authentication for Publons is handled by the same service as other Clarivate Analytics products such as EndNote online and InCites.

Users of other Clarivate Analytics products such as those listed above who are looking to start using Publons can login using their credentials for those products rather than registering a new account. 

  1. Head to the login page:
  2. Enter the email address you use with the other Clarivate product 
  3. Enter your password and press “Sign in” 

You have now activated your Publons account.
