Edited by Jacques Ravel and Liz Wellington, Microbiome is supported by an expert Editorial Board.
Microbiome operates a closed peer-review system. Manuscripts are initially screened by the journal's Editorial team (Editors-in-Chief, Senior Editors and Associate Editors) 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 Editorial team.
Authors will be able to check the progress of their manuscript at any point of the peer review process by logging into the submission system.
