The goal of PCI is to evaluate and recommend preprints. Recommended preprints are valid, citable and final articles. The normal outcome is therefore to leave them on preprint servers or open repositories.

However, the authors of a PCI-recommended article may prefer:

  • To publish it in Peer Community Journal as is, immediately and at no cost
  • To submit it to a PCI-friendly journal (acceptance with no further peer review OR response in 5 days OR use of the PCI evaluation if appropriate).
  • To submit it to other journals.
