Researcher ID/Publons account

Publons uses the same account which is used to log into ResearcherID and Web of Science 

Users already registered in ResearcherID and Web of Science do not need to register for Publons again. 



Use Claim My Record to claim publications you authored in the Web of Science; this ensures your author record lists only publications you authored. This also helps you manage your presence in the Web of Science using a Web of Science ResearcherID.


**Note to UMExpert users - Author Role in UMExpert WoS is reflected only after the author has clicked "Claim my record". It takes 3 days for your claim to be shown in UMExpert WoS.
