In Review

A first-of-its-kind author service

When authors opt in to In Review, their paper is posted as a preprint and made available for comments. In addition to peer review at the journal, community comments help authors to improve their article. A peer review timeline allows authors and readers to track the status of a manuscript with real time updates.

In Review allows authors to:

icon

Post a preprint upon submission to a journal

icon

Track the status of their manuscript with a peer review timeline & real-time updates

icon

Revert their manuscript back to a preprint if it’s rejected from the journal

"I opted-in because I knew I should be submitting preprints, but I didn’t know where to start. In Review made it convenient."
