Open endorsements from the academic community

Light-weight endorsements

Plaudit links researchers, identified by their ORCID, to research they endorse, identified by its DOI.

Easy to integrate

Do you publish research? Your development team or service provider can trivially integrate Plaudit using a simple code snippet.


Publisher-independent and provided by known and trusted members of the academic community, endorsements provide credibility for valuable research.

Open data

Plaudit is built on open infrastructure, and endorsements are fed into CrossRef Event Data and exported to the Internet Archive.

We're open source and not for profit.

An important innovation in peer review and recommendation to recognise the value of scholarly content.
