BMJ: Simultanous Submission to multiple journals

Den Vorschlag Submission to multiple journals: a method of reducing time to publication? machten Torgerson et al. in BMJ, 2005;330:305-307 (5 February). Die Liste der – wie zu erwarten meist negativen – Antworten ist lang und reichte von „This idea would effectively kill peer review“ bis zu „at last the hidden practice is brought to lime light for betterment“. Generell waren wenige mit dem Peer-Review zufrieden: „The process of peer review is highly inefficient and sometimes anti-scientific. Some journals are very efficacious and provide responses quickly but it is not the routine.“
