We know there are a number of different considerations when deciding where to publish your research. The information below highlights PeerJ's distinct advantages compared with other leading publishing options. If you have a question: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since our launch 8 years ago we have quickly earned a reputation as a high-quality publisher that attracts and publishes world-class research.
See our key milestones and events on our timeline page:
We focus on delivering a constructive peer review process based on methodological soundness rather than subjective considerations of impact or novelty.
Most journals use peer review software that slows and frustrates their editors and reviewers.
Our submission system is built from the ground up to make submitting, reviewing and editing as easy - and dare we say enjoyable - as possible. This in turn delivers more in-depth reviews, faster, and more often.
The widespread misuse of the JIF impact factor contributes to the reproducibility crisis, higher and slower publishing costs and academic fraud.
Instead, the citation distribution is now being used by a growing number of journals as a far better indicator for the spread and variation of citations.
Using the generally recognised citation time-lag of two years, PeerJ's 2017 median citation distribution is 5.
PeerJ's 2019 Journal Impact Factor is 2.38.
PeerJ Computer Science's 2019 Journal Impact Factor is 3.09.
