Such policies need to be approved by the divisional or departmental head and/or other people who have the responsibility of administering research policies and mediating any problems that occur. Only the adoption of a sensible and collaborative management approach can ensure that the issues of intellectual property, data sharing, and authorship are handled in a way that is rewarding for all of the parties involved. Fast tracking and early releases In science read, by preference, the newest works; in literature, the oldest. Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803–1873) If you think that your results are exciting and important and that they need to be published quickly, it is sometimes possible to queue-jump and expedite publication. If you feel that your work needs to be published quickly, you can contact 152 Publishing the editors of your journal of choice and put this thought to them, or consider writing a rapid communication. If you ask the editor to fast track your paper, you can expect one of three possible answers that will arrive back to you within days. The possible answers are outright rejection of your paper, a fast track review, or a standard external review. If your paper is accepted as a rapid communication, it will be dealt with swiftly by the editorial committee and, once accepted, may well appear in the next issue of the journal that is published. Rapid communications are generally much shorter than standard journal articles and are used to report original work that is of immediate importance to the scientific community. However, rapid communications are stand-alone articles that should not be used to make a preliminary report of new work that you want to publish in more detail at a later date. A rapid communication can be cited in a future paper but the work cannot be repeated in more detail in a subsequent original journal article because this would be considered to be duplicate publication. Some journals, such as the New England Journal of Medicine, have a policy of releasing some papers early by posting them on their website. In this process, the electronic and printed versions of the papers are identical. The decision to release a paper early is made together with the authors and is usually adopted only for papers that may have immediate implications for clinical practice.
