The influence of bioRχiv on PLOS ONE's peer‐review and acceptance time
TLDR
Analysis of peer‐review and acceptance time of papers published in journals via preprints showed the time these papers are posted in relation to these intervals, and posting to the preprint server before journal submission shows a better order than vice versa.
A Systems View of the Scientist–Practitioner Gap
We commend Rotolo et al. (2018) for introducing a new lens for viewing the well-known gap between industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology research and human resource (HR) practices in
Evaluation of publication delays in the orthopedic surgery manuscript review process from 2010 to 2015
TLDR
There was a decrease in delays of the peer review process in the orthopaedic surgery literature, and this is encouraging in light of the timely availability of evidence to a wide audience.
Tracking the popularity and outcomes of all bioRxiv preprints
TLDR
It is found that preprints on bioRxiv are being read more than ever before and that the rate of preprints being posted has increased to a recent high of more than 2,100 per month, and which journals have published the most preprints are evaluated.
When will I get my paper back? A replication study of publication timelines for health professions education research
TLDR
Recording publication metadata for journals that openly provide it is presented—a first step towards understanding publication timelines in HPE, and the limited data suggest that, in comparison to biomedical scientists broadly, medical educators may experience longer wait times for article acceptance and publication.

TLDR
The analysis suggests that publication practices have changed considerably in the life sciences over the past 30 years, and the average time required for graduate students to publish their first paper has increased and is approaching the desirable duration of PhD training.
Mean Annual Precipitation Explains Spatiotemporal Patterns of Cenozoic Mammal Beta Diversity and Latitudinal Diversity Gradients in North America
TLDR
This work provides empirical evidence that the ecological processes on which climate space models are based are insufficient for accurately forecasting long-term mammalian response to anthropogenic climate change and inclusion of historical parameters may be essential.
Specific removal of TACC3–ch-TOG–clathrin at metaphase deregulates kinetochore fiber tension
TLDR
The results indicate that TACC3–ch-TOG–clathrin complexes are important for the maintenance of spindle structure and function as well as for initial spindle assembly.
