We welcome your feedback on this Peer Review Taxonomy Pilot. Please can you take the time to complete this short survey.
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.
In response to the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic Genome Medicine editors will treat relevant submissions with high priority.
