Genes & Nutrition operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous.
The benefit of single-blind peer review is that it is the traditional model of peer review that many reviewers are comfortable with, and it facilitates a dispassionate critique of a manuscript.
Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two or more experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates already published work, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board.
Genes & Nutrition considers the following types of article: Research paper, Commentary, Letter to the Editor, and Review. For more specific information, please take a look at our Submission Guidelines.
Genes & Nutrition is affiliated with the European Nutrigenomics Organisation (NuGO). NuGO is an association of universities and research institutes focusing on the joint development of the research area of molecular nutrition, personalized nutrition, nutrigenomics and nutritional systems biology.
