Publons currently only supports editor records for manuscripts submitted to journals and conferences. 


Only people recognised by the journal as responsible for managing the peer editorial and peer review processes for manuscripts should add editorial records to Publons. For more information please read: Who can add editor records? 

  

This means that we do not verify non-management editorial activity such as language, method and statistical editors. Confirmations of the written editorial article where you have been an author of an editorial article rather than managing the editorial and review process also cannot be verified. 

 
Unfortunately, Publons currently does not accept editor records for patents, essays, books and other types of editorial records that are not for journals or conferences. 
 
We do hope to provide support for more types of editorial records in the future.
