The peer review process is an essential part of publishing high-quality academic research, but it can be a time-consuming, thankless task, which often slows publication. One organization trying to change this is Publons, a company which “turn[s] peer review into a measurable indicator of a researcher’s expertise and contributions to their field” as part of their mission to “speed up research by harnessing the power of peer review.” Here, academic researchers can create a free profile and “import, verify, and store a record of every peer review [they] perform and every manuscript [they] handle as an editor, for any journal in the world, in full compliance with all editorial policies.” Interested visitors can browse the more than 400,000 participating researchers as well as an extensive FAQ section detailing how Publons works for reviewers, editors, and publishers. Early-career researchers may want to check out Publons Academy, a free online course found under the actions tab. Publons was founded in 2012 in New Zealand by physicist Andrew Preston and social scientist Daniel Johnston. In 2017 it was acquired by Clarivate Analytics, the parent company of Web of Science, and that same year Publons won the ALPSP Innovation in Publishing Award.
