Torgerson, D.J., Adamson, J., Cockayne, S., Dumville, J. and Petherick, E. (2005) Submission to multiple journals: a method of reducing time to publication? BMJ, 330 (7486). pp. 305-307. ISSN 0959-535X
Most medical journals do not allow simultaneous submission of articles to more than one journal. The need for sequential submission is an important factor in delaying the publication of research. We propose that journals should allow authors to submit to two or more journals at the same time. This would lead to greater competition among journals and shorten publication delay, which would benefit both patients and authors.
