Manuscript Transfer Program
Physiological Reports is supported by other journals published by The Physiological Society and the American Physiological Society. After review in a supporting journal, rejected articles of suitable quality can be identified by the Editor as candidates for publication in Physiological Reports. Authors will have the option to transfer their manuscript to Physiological Reports and complete the submission process. The Physiological Reports editors will then undertake further evaluation. Importantly, authors will not need to make any changes to their manuscript at this stage. Authors should note that decision letters and referees’ comments are transferred to the editor of Physiological Reports along with the manuscript. The Physiological Reports editors will take the previous reviews into account when making their decision, although in some cases the editors may choose to take advice from additional referees.
