View your manuscript’s progress through peer review with our In Review service

BMC Health Services Research, in partnership with Research Square, has launched In Review, a new pre-print service that provides authors with on-demand information on the status of their manuscript enables them to share their work with funding bodies and their research community, and allows their colleagues to comment and collaborate - all whilst their manuscript is under review.

Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received
