Jeffrey D. Roth, MD, Medical Director, Working Sobriety Chicago, Editor, Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery
My day job is serving as an addiction psychiatrist and group psychotherapist with a group of colleagues at Working Sobriety Chicago. When I became editor-in-chief of the Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery, I brought both my naivete as a journal editor and my experience of working with group processes.

The Cogent transfer service
A manuscript may flow through multiple journals and rounds of review on its way to publication. Authors of work that goes on to be published can sometimes wait many months before publication, with efforts of reviewers and editors expended at each stage. That’s why we created the Cogent Transfer service - journal editors can at the point of rejection simply identify if the manuscript may be suitable for publication elsewhere by selecting the Reject – Unsuitable option. The author will then be offered a transfer to a suitable Cogent OA journal, and has the choice whether to transfer their manuscript or not. If they agree, Taylor & Francis/Cogent OA staff will transfer the manuscript on their behalf, no re-formatting required. Of course, authors are entirely free to submit their manuscript elsewhere.Read more...
