What an amazing influx of research articles we received during our 5 Year Celebration last month! PeerJ received over 1500 submissions throughout February 2018 and we are very pleased to have so many scientists experiencing our modern publishing platform.

It is author feedback that inspires us to keep innovating and confirms the reasons why we do what we do. From our early days five years ago to the many submissions we received last month, below is some of the fantastic feedback we’ve received along the way…

What are PeerJ authors saying about our submission system?

“I really like the PeerJ web interface for manuscript submission. Someone thought carefully about how to help authors to organize and upload files and metadata.”

“Formatting a manuscript for submission is usually the most tedious part of the writing process, but PeerJ’s online interface made it completely painless. I don’t know what’s taking other journals so long to adopt a similar system.” Gregory Wheeler

“I enjoyed the submission process. This is often not the case with many journals!”

“This journal handles software submissions very well.” Veronica Grieneisen

“Thanks for developing a friendly web application to upload and submit a manuscript.” Luis Bautista

“The best part of PeerJ is its layout and user-friendly submission system. Hats off to PeerJ staff for doing such a good work.” Kumar Manish

“The online submission process for PeerJ was smooth. I liked how you could see a brief profile of the Editors when making a selection.” Christopher Beaven

“As a first-time author, I appreciated the amount of guidance and explanations the submission site gave me. Everything was super user-friendly and straightforward.”

“The interface for submission is very user-friendly and for once submitting the manuscript was a pleasant experience.”

At PeerJ, we’ve worked hard on, and continue to refine, a set of tools and instructions that aim to make the submission process an enjoyable experience. Read more author feedback and learn more about the benefits of publishing with PeerJ.
