Peerage of Science signs deal with Taylor & Francis

Share this on social media:

Peerage of Science, an independent submission and peer review service, has established a contract with Taylor & Francis Group. The collaboration brings 30 journal destinations into Peerage of Science.

The journals are now available for authors directly inside the Peerage of Science system, in author's manuscript and peer review view. Authors can initiate correspondence with journal editors with a few clicks. Editors of the participating journals have access to all peer review processes on the platform, and they can proactively initiate correspondence with authors on already-peer-reviewed content and invite manuscripts which best fit their journal's profile, aims and scope.

The collaboration expands the direct access 'The Select' destination list in Peerage of Science to 67 journals. Among the new entries are for example broad-scope ecological titles such as Écoscience (in association with University of Laval), prominent evolutionary biology journal Systematics and Biodiversity (in association with The Natural History Museum, London), and highly focused field-defining leaders such as Bioacoustics (in association with The British Library Sound Archive).

The expansion also broadens author's choices in Peerage of Science in fields of entomology, agriculture, herpetology, plant sciences, geology, climate change and zoology.

Janne-Tuomas Seppänen, founder and managing director at Peerage of Science, said: 'In the brief history of the premium "The Select" service in Peerage of Science, the addition of 30 new destinations at once is the largest single expansion to date.

'I am excited to launch collaboration with Taylor & Francis with this milestone, and particularly happy that our destination selection expands with so many highly specialised, high-quality journals. I know many scientists in the Peerage of Science community are devoted to the subjects these journals focus on, and they often prefer to publish their research in outlets like these, curated for and by their core communities.

'With this expansion, the "just right" destination journal is directly available for so many more kinds of articles, making the service that much more useful for the scientific community.'

Deborah Kahn, editorial director at Taylor & Francis, added: 'I am delighted that Taylor & Francis are partnering with Peerage of Science. Their excellent and innovative peer review services will be welcomed by authors and editors across our journals portfolio in biology, ecology and natural history.'
