What authors say about publishing in our journals
The entire refereeing process went smoothly. If we did have any questions, the staff of Philosophical Transactions A was extremely helpful in dealing with them. It was a very good experience.
Editing a Philosophical Transactions B issue was well worth the effort - the staff members were helpful, professional and efficient and our issue has had real impact on the field.
Publishing our Perspective with Proceedings B was by far the best experience I've had with a major journal in the past few decades. We received tough reviews, which allowed us to greatly improve the paper, and this was followed up with very prompt publication and excellent access across the Royal Society website.
The entire review and production process for Proceedings A has been handled with remarkable professionalism and efficiency. As the editor of an ISI journal, I can appreciate the enormous organizational effort and discipline hidden behind this procedure.
We were truly pleased to publish our article in Open Biology. The entire process, from submission to publication, was very smooth and fast (just 2 months), while the editorial staff was extremely helpful, professional and efficient. This exciting journal will undoubtedly become one of the key journals in the field and we would be more than happy to publish in Open Biology in the future.
I found each step in the submission and publishing process to be expertly and efficiently handled. The referees were clearly experts in the field and our revised manuscript was dealt with promptly. I certainly hope to publish more of our work in Royal Society Open Science.
We chose the open access option for our article in Biology Letters because we think it makes a big difference to the impact of the article. The open access option is fabulous! Moreover, the service we received was flawless.
Spectacular. On behalf of the other Guest Editor I would like to thank you for the no-nonsense management of this special issue.
Thank you again for everything. We will happily submit more to Interface in the future, and we will of course strive to send only our best works.
