Notes on what makes a good peer-review report
Recently, some Genes and Nutrition editors took place in a webinar about peer review. In an effort to bring some uniformity to the peer-review process, we have put together this page of suggestions to reviewers with regard to what makes a good peer-review report (pease note- this list represents recommendations not requirements).

We are proud to present a new Debate article in Genes and Nutrition “Will guidelines on alcohol consumption be personalized by a genetic approach?” Our co-Editor-in-Chief Fabio Virgili moderates a discussion between Simona Costanzo aand Salvatore Panico, stems from the recent “shift” of several nutritional guidelines from the previous suggested/recommended low-to-moderate alcohol consumption to advised against at any level.
