All Pensoft journals now integrated with Peerage of Science
Pensoft was one of the early adopters of Peerage of Science, and it is now expanding the collaboration to cover all Pensoft journals in The Select, the premium service in Peerage of Science for publishers. Authors now see 16 Pensoft journals in their destination menu, and they can simply click a journal logo to send the manuscript together with peer reviews to any of the journals. Editors of the journals can now access all ongoing peer review processes in Peerage of Science, and make direct publishing offers to authors.
Prof. Lyubomir Penev, Founder and Managing Director at Pensoft, said:
“This collaboration works well both for us and for Peerage of Science, but most of all, it empowers the authors to set the deadlines for peer review and choose between publication offers. From the very inception of Pensoft we have striven to provide a fast, reliable and innovative service to our authors, and this new move is yet another building block in this vision.”
Among the integrated journals is the newest innovation in open access publishing, RIO Journal. In addition to research articles, RIO is significantly expanding the scope of research outputs that can be formally published, including research proposals. Founded by Prof. Penev, Dr. Daniel Mietchen and Dr. Ross Mounce, RIO also introduces other unique features, such as a-la-carte choice for authors – they can choose which publisher services they need.
Janne-Tuomas Seppänen, Co-Founder of Peerage of Science, is pleased to see the expanding collaboration, particularly as it includes RIO:
"Pensoft is a special partner for us, because they were the first publisher to start an official collaboration with Peerage of Science years ago, when we had just launched. Also, Pensoft is in many ways a pioneering publisher seeking to make the world a better place for scientists, with initiatives like the ARPHA writing tool and the RIO Journal. I am particularly happy that Pensoft is continuing and expanding its support for our solutions for peer review, and brings more journals to the author's destination menu in Peerage of Science. We warmly welcome the 10 new titles and their editors, and look forward to a long and productive partnership."
