Abstract

Over the years, there has been a strategic transition from subscription-based to open-access publishing. This transition has driven some changes in peer review, including cascading peer review. The latter apparently avoids rejections. This article analyses cascading peer review for open-access publishing and focuses on its potential impact on authors, reviewers, editors, publishers, and learned societies.
