Find your publications in Web of Science and claim them to your Publons account
Another way to add publications to your Publons profile is by adding them from an Author Search beta in Web of Science Core Collection.
Author Search beta retrieves Author Records for the author name you search. Author Records are groups of publications that are likely by one person. They are created with a combination of artificial intelligence and human curated data. The algorithm uses over 40 data features, including name matching, affiliation, citation behavior and co-authorship patterns, combined with Web of Science ResearcherID and ORCID identifiers, plus direct feedback from the Web of Science community.
