BMC Biology Shares Rejected Papers’ Peer Reviews with Other Journals
Published:23 Jan.2019    Source:The Scientist

The Springer Nature journal BMC Biology plans to provide rival publications with peer reviews of papers it rejects. BMC Biology aims to cut down on wasted time in the peer-review process by providing these reviews for reuse, for instance, when the manuscript did not fit the scope of the publication. BMC Biology will not share reviews for papers that were rejected because of unsound science.
