At an author's request, an NPRC journal will transmit prior reviews and the identity of reviewers to another alliance journal, to simplify the review process. When we receive a transfer through the NPRC, we treat the submission like a revised paper, and not a new article.
Here's how the process works:
- Identify that you are transferring an article through the NPRC in the cover letter.
- Include a response to the prior reviews as a separate file.
- Contact the prior journal and request that they send the reviews to JNP.
Typically, the original referees are asked to reconsider the paper and the author responses, so it is sometimes possible to accept a paper after a single round of peer review.
