Manuscript Transfer Program

Each Wiley Open Access journal is editorially independent with an Editor-in-Chief, Associate Editors, in some cases and Editorial Boards, who take editorial decisions on all submitted manuscripts for their journal.

Wiley Open Access Direct Manuscript Submissions
Authors can directly submit their manuscript for review and go through peer review administered by the journal’s Editorial team.

Wiley Open Access Manuscript Transfer Policy
A number of Wiley Open Access journals participate in a Manuscript Transfer Program. After review in a supporting journal, rejected articles of suitable quality can be identified by the Editor as candidates for publication in a Wiley Open Access journal. Authors will have the option to automatically transfer their manuscript to the Wiley Open Access journal and complete the submission process. The Wiley Open Access journal will then undertake further editorial 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 the Wiley Open Access journal along with the manuscript. The journal 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.

Journals participating in the Manuscript Transfer Program and that are subject to the policies outlined above are listed below.  Lists of Wiley journals that support and participate in the Wiley Open Access Manuscript Transfer program are available for each Wiley Open Access journal below:
