ACM and Publons partner to reward article reviewers -

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has announced an effort to better serve and incentivise those who review ACM publications. Using the Publons Reviewer Recognition Service, reviewers of ACM publications will now be able to create a profile and to track, verify and promote their efforts. Publons, which is owned by Clarivate Analytics, offers a verified record of a reviewer’s editorial activity for a publication that can be used for CVs, profiles, tenure packages, and any other documents that list professional credentials.

Publons is an opt-in service and does not compromise the blind or double-blind review process. Only the journal name for each review is associated with the reviewer’s profile, enough for a reviewer to get verified recognition for his or her work but not revealing any confidential details.

Additionally, there is typically a natural delay between the time a reviewer submits a review (and opts in for Publons recognition) and when the author gets the reviewer’s feedback (which is the delay between the time it takes for all reviews to be completed and then for the editor to make a decision). This delay further impedes reviewer identification.
