Manuscripts can be rejected during peer review because of poor manuscript structure, a weak argument, or other factors that may have been overlooked by authors. If you choose our Rapid Technical Review service, our experts will review your article to identify major reasons for rejection. This means you can address the issues before you submit your article to the journal of your choice. You’ll rapidly receive your review, allowing you to revise your manuscript and still meet publication deadlines.
