A connected account is an account from another service which you can use to login to Publons and other Clarivate services. The accounts you can link are: 

  • ORCiD (this is required for importing publications from ORCiD) 
  • LinkedIn 
  • Google 
  • Facebook 
  • WeChat 


You can see your connected accounts in the Connected Accounts tab of your Clarivate account settings.

In addition to the providers above you may see a Clarivate connected account. This connected account corresponds to the email and password combinations you can use to login to any Clarivate service. 


To connect an account on Publons: 

  • Navigate to the Connected Accounts tab of your Account settings page.
  • Select “Connect” alongside the account type you wish to connect. 
  • Authenticate that account.
