Standards in Genomic Sciences 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.
Edited by Editor-in-Chief George Garrity, Standards in Genomic Sciences is supported by an expert Editorial Board. Manuscripts are initially screened by the Editorial Board and suitable manuscripts are sent to at least two reviewers for consideration. Decisions will be made on the recommendations of the reviewers, but final decisions lie with the Senior Editors and Editor-in-Chief.
