(12 August 2016) Springer Nature teaming up with Publons in a 12-month pilot to revive peer review and speed up science.
Peer review matters. Expert peer review improves the work of others and protects the world from harmful science that can set back advances in human understanding by decades. Springer Nature, like Publons, are committed to speeding up science through superior peer review.
As of September 2016, reviewers for participating journals will get the option to have a verified record of each review they do added to their Publons profile. By default, only the name of the journal and the year of the review will be displayed, although some journal policies may allow reviewers to display more detailed information if they want to.
Over 70,000 experts already use Publons to showcase their hard work reviewing over 400,000 manuscripts across the world’s journals. Publons works with the world’s top publishers, including Springer Nature, Wiley and The Royal Society to make it effortless for experts to track their peer review work.
