The Editors will issue invitations to transfer manuscripts previously submitted to the JCI that are deemed better suited for JCI Insight. If you receive an invitation to transfer your submission, the email will include a link to a web page where you can accept or decline the invitation. The invitation to transfer your manuscript to JCI Insight will remain open for 60 days. Manuscripts are automatically transferred to JCI Insight in the original formatting used for submission to the JCI, along with any applicable reviews and correspondence, and will be handled by the Editor who issued the invitation to transfer.
Authors of manuscripts that were previously reviewed by the JCI will receive a rapid decision from JCI Insight (generally in fewer than 7 days) that provisionally accepts the manuscript, specifies the requirements for reconsideration at JCI Insight, or outlines the basis for rejection without an opportunity to resubmit. Transferred manuscripts that were editorially rejected by the JCI will be sent for external peer review prior to the initial decision.
Authors who wish to inquire about the suitability of transferring their manuscript from the JCI to JCI Insight should contact the Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
