Reviewer Rewards


At Publons, our goal is to turn peer review into an activity just as rewarding as publishing an article.

That's why our prestigious Sentinels of Science Awards are the highest honour for peer reviewers. We partner with publishing heavyweights to acknowledge and give back to the experts making outstanding contributions to reviewing the world's research.

Sentinels of Science Awards

Sentinels of Science

The Sentinels of Science Awards are like the Nobel prizes for peer review, honouring those who have made outstanding contributions to peer review each year.

Peer Review Week 2016 marked the inuagural Sentinels of Science Awards. You can read the details and see the recipients here.

Quarterly Rewards

Before we launched the Sentinels of Science Awards, we ran a quarterly rewards programme, honouring the reviewers who earnt the most merit for reviews completed over each three month period. The quarterly rewards also acknowledged those reviewers from the most prolific reviewing Universities and Scientific Disciplines (determined using SCOPUS's ASJC codes and reviews submitted to journals during the period).
