One thought on “BMJ Open


    A friend recommended this journal to me for the type of study I was trying to publish. She praised their relatively quick turnaround time but I experienced the contrary. It took me 6 months to get my first reviewer comments and that was even after I offered to suggest reviewers. After I got my first reviewer comments, however, everything else was smooth. They have stated clearly that they are prioritizing covid-19 papers since they are a medical journal. Hence, somehow, that delay was expected. I would still recommend them because they are very quick to respond to emails and are very understanding if you need an extension or other favours, etc. But for the timing issue, I would have given them 5 stars.
