Epigenetics & Chromatin 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.
All manuscripts are reviewed by internationally recognized experts in the field, selected in part from our Editorial Board. Reviews are usually returned within 21 days, and the suitability of a manuscript for publication is assessed solely on criteria of scientific excellence. First and final decisions are made by the Editors-in-Chief.
Epigenetics & Chromatin considers the following types of article: Research, Methodology, and Review. For more specific information, please take a look at our Submission Guidelines.
