Wiley Open Access Manuscript Transfer Program
Brain and Behavior is supported by other journals published by Wiley including a number of society-owned journals. After review in a supporting Wiley journal, rejected articles of suitable quality can be identified by the Editor as candidates for publication in Brain and Behavior. Authors will have the option to automatically transfer their manuscript to Brain and Behavior and complete the submission process. The Brain and Behavior 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 referees’ comments are transferred to the editor of Brain and Behavior along with the manuscript. The Brain and Behavior 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.
