Pre-Publication Platform

Improve your author experience with more openness and transparency. Support early sharing, community commenting, and detailed peer review updates for your authors.

Pre-Publication Platform

The Research Square platform provides a new level of openness to peer review and research discovery. It allows journals to post papers online as soon as they are submitted and provides authors with detailed updates on the status of their paper.

Our collaboration with BMC

In Review at BMC is an exciting new project launched on the Research Square platform. When authors opt in, their papers are made available for commenting by the community. Those comments are passed on to the editor as part of the decision-making process. Any reviews the editors obtain are posted to the author’s private dashboard in real time and a detailed peer review timeline allows the author to see the status of their manuscript.
