Get recognition for your reviews for SAGE Publishing

SAGE highly values the expertise and hard work of reviewers, and the essential role that you play in maintaining the integrity and accuracy of research. As part of our commitment to supporting the reviewer community, we are partnering with Publons, a service that gets you recognition for your peer review contributions.

What is Publons?

Publons is a free service that enables you to effortlessly record, verify, and showcase your peer review contributions. You can be assured that reviewer anonymity is maintained, in accordance with the journal’s review policy.

How is SAGE working with Publons?

We have partnered with Publons to integrate up to 1000 of our journals with the service to enable you to quickly and easily get the recognition for your work that you deserve. Browse the list of our journals that are already integrated

How does Publons work?

For our integrated journals this means:

  • You can opt-in to receive recognition on Publons at the point of your review submission
  • You’ll receive an email inviting you to set up a profile on Publons and claim your review
  • You can choose the ‘auto-add’ option in your profile, meaning your reviews for this and any other integrated journals will automatically be added to your Publons profile in future, with no further action required from you

For any journal:

  • You can set up your profile on Publons
  • You can manually add any reviews completed from throughout your entire career by forwarding your reviewer receipt email to or filling out the online form from your account
