We are pleased to announce the agreement between IGF and Publons.
From Wikipedia: “Publons is a website and free service for academics to track, verify and showcase their peer review and editorial contributions across the world's academic journals. It was launched in 2012 and by 2017 more than 200,000 researchers have joined the site, adding more than one million reviews across 25,000 journals. Publons' mission is to "speed up science by harnessing the power of peer review". Publons claims that by turning peer review into a measurable research output, academics can use their review and editorial record as evidence of their standing and influence in their field.
Publons enables researchers to maintain a single verified record of their review and editorial activity for any of the world's journals. This evidence is showcased on reviewers' online profiles and can be downloaded to include in CVs, funding and job applications, and promotion and performance evaluations”
The partnership between IGF and Publons means that, after the reviewer receives the “thank you mail” from the Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale Editor in Chief, it is simply necessary to forward this email to Publons to add the review to the reviewer profile on Publons (no matter if the reviewed manuscript is accepted or rejected). By default, the content of reviews for Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale is not publicly displayed on Publons.
This news service is our way to thank the reviewers for their essential contribution to the Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale life.
