How Axios Review works:
1. Choose Journals
You pick four target journals
and submit to Axios Review
2. Get Reviews
Get feedback from our expert
3. We Do Referrals
Find out which journal
wants your paper
4. Revise and Submit
Rework your paper, submit
to the interested journal
What can Axios Review do for you?
Submitting to higher profile journals risks being rejected multiple times, which uses up the valuable time of authors, reviewers, and editors. Here’s how we help:
- You can aim high with your top choice target journals and play safe with the others
- Once referred, about 80% of papers get accepted for journal publication
- Many accepted papers (~50%) do not receive further peer review
- Axios submission to journal publication averages 3 months (excl. time in revision)

NB We have switched from charging our fee when your paper is accepted at a target journal to charging when we send the reviewer comments – this only applies to papers submitted after July 1st 2015 that go out for external review. There is no charge for papers that are decided immediately by an Axios Editor. We’re making this change because we feel our process is working well (see above), and we need to make the organization more sustainable.
“Your service was bar none! I could not be more pleased, and will be singing the praises of Axios to anyone who will listen … the paper was accepted to [journal] pretty much “as is” … the Editor was positively effusive”
Prof. Anne Yoder, Duke University
“I just wanted to pass along my thanks again for helping with reviews on our paper … [the journal] didn’t feel the need to send it out again and just reviewed in house which we totally owe to the great reviews and feedback from Axios!”
Ben Sandkam, Simon Fraser University
“As promised, I got an extremely nice experience with Axios Review, and I am more than happy with the service”
Prof. Cino Pertoldi, Aalborg University
“Our paper was contingently accepted at [journal] with only a few little revisions. Both editors and reviewers mentioned that Axios reviews helped make their decision.”
Dr. Chris Muir, University of British Columbia
“I have been impressed by the quality of the editors and reviewers Axios have recruited, as well as by the quality of the reviews themselves.”
Christopher Foote, BMC Evolutionary Biology
“Axios has provided high quality reviews and editor’s comments for all manuscripts referred to Ecology Letters. The service has worked well in allowing us to make a quick decision on manuscripts in a way that is well informed .. the Axios service is impressive and deserves to be widely used”
Marcel Holyoak, Ecology Letters
“Axios consistently provides useful reviews from appropriate reviewers, and can significantly streamline our in-house process.”
Michael Ritchie, Journal of Evolutionary Biology
