COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

SARS-CoV-2 vaccine infection of human cell lines

Sarah Gilbert, David Matthews and colleagues present the first analysis of the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine’s transcriptomic and proteomic repertoire in cell culture.

Special issue: Impact of genomics on precision public health

Our special issue on ‘The impact of genomics on precision public health’, guest edited by Muin Khoury and Kathryn Holt has launched. 

Untreated breast cancer and initial metastatic event

Paul Cottu and colleagues conduct a multicentre prospective clinical trial on advanced breast cancer patients with profiling of the initial metastasis to derive prognostic and therapeutically relevant information.  

Editing GWAS

Daniel Bauer and colleagues discuss the challenges in interrogating causal variants, points for consideration in experimental design and interpretation of GWAS locus mechanisms.

Aims and scope

Genome Medicine publishes important advances of broad interest in the application of genetics, genomics and multi-omics to understand, diagnose and treat disease. The Journal aims to bridge the basic science and clinical research communities in areas that include, but are not limited to: cancer genomics, immuno-oncology, immunogenomics, infectious disease, microbiome, cardiology, neurogenomics, systems medicine, clinical genomics, gene therapies, precision medicine, and clinical trials. The Journal content includes original research, method, software, database and guideline articles as well as reviews, opinions and commentaries.

    C19 Rapid Review initiative

    Genome Medicine has joined the C19 Rapid Review initiative, a cross-publisher collaboration to ensure that COVID-19 research is reviewed and published as quickly and openly as possible. Learn more here

    Submissions from medRxiv 

    Authors are now able to submit manuscripts to Genome Medicine directly from medRxiv without having to re-upload files.

    Portable peer review

    To reduce time spent on serial submissions and iterative reviewing, Genome Medicine offers to consider manuscripts on the basis of reviews received at other journals. We also support transfers of reviews obtained at Genome Medicine to other journals, including those outside of BMC and Springer Nature. Learn more from our peer review policy page.

    COVID-19 submissions

    In response to the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic Genome Medicine editors will treat relevant submissions with high priority.
