    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.
