30 days to first-decision (across all subjects). Publish quickly without compromising review quality.
You may need to email our editorial staff for assistance. Unlike most other journals, we prioritize author support to guarantee a stress-free publication experience.
Our submission system is hand-built to one aim - making your experience as painless, fast and enjoyable as possible.
Our clean and easy-to-read article design is consistently mentioned by our authors, with many citing this as an important reason for choosing to publish with us.
To maximise the total number of views and citations of your article, you should actively share and engage academics in your work after publication. We help you do this.
Open access articles receive more views and downloads and are accessed for a longer period of time than paywalled articles.
PeerJ's reviewing platform makes robust review a straightforward process.
We want to make publishing as cost-effective as possible. Through the use of modern efficient workflows and new technology we are able to offer a better service at a lower cost than all comparative journals.
