January 15, 2018 – Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – International publisher Brill is participating in a pilot with Publons, the online platform for peer reviewer recognition.
Via Publons, academics can track, verify and showcase their peer review and editorial contributions across the world’s academic journals. Publons is freely available for academics. As an acknowledgement of the importance of peer review, Brill has integrated ten journals with Publons, for the duration of one year.
The ten journals participating in the pilot:
African and Asian Studies
Asian Journal of Social Science
Insect Systematics and Evolution
Journal of Moral Philosophy
Society and Animals
For these ten journals, peer reviewers will receive an invitation to automatically add a verified record of each review performed to their Publons profile, when submitting the report. With this pilot, Brill aims to build more effective, long-lasting relationships with peer reviewers, ensuring peer reviewers get the credit they deserve for their critical work.
