There are two notable features about submissions in 2016. First, Rapid Reports are increasing in popularity. Second, we are receiving more Review Articles, which hopefully will bolster the Journal’s impact factor.
Of the manuscripts processed, 52% were accepted and 48% were rejected. 37 of the rejections were triage rejections (prior to peer review).
Of the rejected manuscripts, 80 were referred to Physiological Reports (including 11 with triage reject decisions).
