About the Journal

PQS is an open access journal.  Distinct benefits and features of PQS include:

• Peer Review.  A peer-reviewed publication, publishing selectively only those articles that pass peer review requirements of its Editorial Board.

• Electronic Delivery.  Content is offered via online publication (no print option).

• Speed.  Rapid review and publication times

• No “pay wall” for readers.  No subscription fees; PQS is free and "open access" to any viewer

• Authors retain copyright

• Advertisements Welcome.  Online advertising and commercial reprints are available.

• Front-End Funded.  Unlike most open access journals, PQS does not generate its primary revenue through article processing charges paid by individual authors or authors' institutions/grant funding bodies.  Instead, the cost of publication for peer-reviewed, accepted manuscripts is underwritten by a grant from Nationwide Children's Hospital.  All submissions to PQS undergo a thorough, single-blind peer review process in order to be considred for publication in the Journal. All decisions to accept and publish manuscripts are solely in the province of the editorial board.
