Master peer review with the Publons Academy

The Publons Academy is a free, online peer review training course designed for Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students and early career researchers in collaboration with world-renowned researchers, peer-reviewers, journal editors and Nobel Laureates.

How will it help me?

The ten modules of the course will teach you core competencies and skills of peer review. Under supervision, you will practice the real writing of post-publication peer reviews. Upon graduation from the Academy, you will be in the pool of volunteers for the journal editors to choose from.

When should I do the training?
