Journal avoids the 're-review nightmare'
3/2/2009 6.37pm by
The Journal of Biology (published by BioMedCentral) is changing its peer-review process, apparently in response to reviewers and authors who disliked their previous system of sending revised papers back to reviewers for further comment which one described as 'the re-review nightmare'.
You can get more details from http://jbiol.com/content/8/1/1.
It would be interesting to hear whether other journals routinely send revised versions back to the reviewers and, if so, how reviewers (and authors) respond.
