dc.description.abstractThe median delay from your manuscript being ready, to being assigned a DOI at a journal, is about nine months. This would be understandable, if that time was spent on rigorous, thorough and careful peer review - but we all know it is not. Mostly the time is spent waiting, sliding down the journal prestige ladder one rejection after another. Furthermore, the peer reviews editors receive during this slow process are still too often careless, quickly done scribbles of couple paragraphs (in a recent study the median length of biological sciences peer reviews reviews was found out to be less than 300 words). Your research, and your dedication and hard work in advancing your field if you are an editor, deserve better peer review and more sensible publishing procedures. Peerage of Science has built solutions to these issues, and also ways to have more equal, but still merit-based, opportunity to contribute to science via peer review no matter where on Earth you live. We work together with journals and publishers, from societies like Society for Conservation Biology to giants like Springer Nature and Taylor & Francis to make this possible.
