  • The AAPS Journals Make Use of Portable Peer Review

    If your manuscript has been declined, and you are planning to submit your article to another of the four AAPS journals (AAPS Open, The AAPS Journal, AAPSPharmSciTech, or Pharmaceutical Research), we can help make the peer review process faster and smoother by extending the use of previous peer reviewer comments! Portable Peer Review, an opt-into service available for any author of these journals, allows us to share, between the portfolio, previous peer review comments and reviewer names, subject to approval of all parties. This can help speed up the assessment process, should the editor choose to make a decision on the basis of the comments and revision. Interested?  Email us with the name of the journal to which you are going to submit. Note: Portable peer review is opt-in only, available at the authors’ preference, and the reviewer identities and comments will only be shared between offices, not to the author.
