Portable peer review

After the introduction of portable phones, portable computers and portable music we are now facing a new development “portable peer reviews”. However, this does not mean, that
you can take for rejections, revisions, acceptance letter whereever you want. It is rather a recyling of earlier peer reviews.

Biomed Central (BMC) and other publishers implemented now a tool to keep your earlier peer review comments for another journal (from a specific list of publishers). Such a procedure might speed up time to become accepted and might reduce work load for peer reviewers. However, peer reviewers have to accept to this procedure – and have to provide their name. Let’s hope that most of them agree to such a procedure.

More Information here. Comments welcome!

Best wishes
