What is In Review?

Modified on Mon, 15 Apr 2024 at 05:09 PM

In Review is a free preprint service that gives authors the option to have their manuscript posted online at the time of submission to select journals. Powered by Research Square and developed in partnership with Springer NatureIn Review also gives authors and readers access to the status of a manuscript via a peer review timeline while their manuscript is under review at the journal.

In Review allows authors to benefit from early sharing, including potential earlier citations, visibility, and collaboration opportunities. Authors can demonstrate research progress to funders and others and engage the wider community for comment and collaboration all while their manuscript is being reviewed. The wider research community will be able to discover new research on one of the world’s largest preprint servers, comment on and help improve emerging science, and gain insight into work currently under review at participating journals.

At BMC and Springer open access journals, In Review provides a public peer review timeline and supports public release of peer reviewed versions. For more information about what authors can expect if they opt-in at BMC and Springer open access journals, refer to the In Review Journal integrated preprint sharing from Springer Nature and Research Square page.


In Review at Nature journals provides journal-integrated preprint sharing on the Research Square preprint platform. For more information about In Review at Nature journals, see refer to the In Review at Nature Journals page
