We are pleased to announce a partnership between PeerRef and Blockchain in Healthcare Today (BHTY).

PeerRef is a journal-independent open peer review platform. It helps researchers verify and improve research by organizing peer review of preprints and publishing peer review reports. It also provides journal editors with verified research that can be published immediately. The partnership will provide authors of suitable refereed preprints with a route to publication in BHTY.  Editors will consider PeerRef’s open peer review reports in publication decisions. For articles that are accepted, authors of refereed preprints will receive a 10% waiver on the journal's APC. Through this partnership, we will give authors more choice in how they share their peer reviewed preprints.
