Get recognition for peer review with Publons

A researcher recently brought the site Publons to our attention as a good way to get credit for the often unseen and uncredited work of peer reviewing for publication. Publons states their mission as follows:

Publons works with the world’s top publishers so you can effortlessly track, verify and showcase your peer review contributions across the world’s journals. It’s all part of our plan to speed up science and research and give the experts involved in peer review the recognition they deserve.

The service has had support from several major publishers already (e.g. Wiley, CUP) and integrates with ORCID so that your review record can be included on your ORCID profile. Read the full list of benefits for researchers here: https://publons.com/benefits/researchers/ . An example of a profile page is Charles Dunnill from Swansea University.

Swansea University has an institutional profile page too –  Swansea University. Publons were great at removing a duplicate profile we’d got for “University of Wales, Swansea” so all our researchers are now in one place.
