The author may now choose to: Make revisions while awaiting additional reviews (all article versions are saved and available to both author and reviewers). Make revisions and request that the article is re-reviewed. Make revisions and request editorial approval to publish, while also providing explanatory comments regarding all review-based revisions." Includes a post-publication rating system, the Scholarly Impact Quotient™ (SIQ™): "During this post-publication peer-review rating process, users are asked to judge the relative merits of the article on a scale of 1-10 (1 = poor and 10 = excellent) in the following areas: clarity of background and rationale, clinical importance, study design and methods, data analysis, novelty of conclusions and quality of presentation."
