Open peer review content from Publons is displayed within the Web of Science full record pages. Full record pages of articles in the Web of Science Core Collection that include published and/or signed reviews, author responses or decision letters now feature a button enabling display of that review content. Readers will be able to access this content by selecting the ‘Open peer review’ button on the full record page.

In addition to peer review content in full record pages, researchers will soon have access to peer review contribution summaries and metrics in Web of Science author records.
