Publication scores are generated by selecting a number from 1-10 in two fields, these fields are "Quality" and "Significance" where "Quality" is intended to be a measure of the paper's methodology and rigor, while "Significance" is intended to denote novelty as well as relevance to its field and journal.


You can create a score from any publication detail page on Publons or from the scores page on your private dashboard. Your score history will show you all the papers you have scored on Publons.
