How can I get recognition for my reviewing activities?

Modified on Thu, 27 Jun at 2:12 PM



Sage utilizes the Web of Science Reviewer Recognition Service (formerly Publons) that enables you to quickly and easily receive recognition for the work you have completed. This free service enables you to effortlessly record, verify, and showcase your peer review contributions. The service records the number of papers you have reviewed for a journal while maintaining reviewer anonymity in accordance with each journal’s review policy.

For more information, please view the Web of Science Reviewer Recognition service video, the linked video provides a comprehensive overview of the service and how it functions.
