Proposals for open peer commentary are solicited about once a month for select Target Articles, which may be read and downloaded via the ScholarOne website.
To receive announcements about our OPC calls, please create an account in ScholarOne. We suggest adding ‘editor at bioethics dot net’ to your contact list so that our OPC calls don’t accidentally get filtered out as spam.
We also post information about our OPC calls on AJOB’s ScholarOne homepage and also announce them on Twitter and in our bi-weekly newsletter.
All authors interested in writing a commentary must first submit a short proposal (2-4 sentences) via the ScholarOne, uploaded as a Word file in accordance with the manuscript submission requirements. Authors of selected proposals will then have 2-3 weeks to submit their final manuscript, also uploaded as a Word file in accordance with the manuscript submission requirements. The Editors reserve the right to return proposals and approved commentaries without explanation. OPCs are reviewed internally by our editorial team.
