Paper submission

  1. Aug 1, 2011 #1
    Some matured opinions are needed here. After a paper being rejected by Phys.Rev. journals (I already signed the copyright transfer) while the editor suggested 'may consider publication on other sections', can I still submit this paper to other non-APS journals? Thanks in advance.

    You may want to read the Copyright FAQ on the APS page. It took me about a minute to find

    Thanks, Timo. Very helpful to a newbie. Still one question: Do I have to withdraw the paper from APS? Or the rejection means that I am free to submit it somewhere else.

    Yes, if it has been rejected, and you don't plan on resubmitting it there, then the copyright transfer is null and void. You can resubmit it elsewhere.
