eLife Becomes a Member of NPRC (Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium)

eLife, which receives a substantial number of neuroscience-related submissions, joined NPRC (Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium), an alliance of journal publishers that is working to reduce the time and effort involved in the peer review process of publishing neuroscience research.

The organizations have similar strategies: During this process, eLife shares referee reports and identities (when given permission) with another journal that the corresponding author chooses; NPRC allows authors whose papers haven’t been accepted by a journal in the alliance to forward peer reviews to a second journal in the alliance. Additionally, the organizations don’t discriminate on which research to publish based on length—eLife has an online journal that doesn’t have a word count limit; NPRC was founded by editors who saw that articles were being rejected because of space limitations.

For more information, read the press release.
