Mobile DNA 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 Marlene Belfort, Cédric Feschotte, Haig Kazazian and Henry Levin, Mobile DNA is supported by an expert Editorial Board.
Manuscripts are initially screened by the Editors-in-Chief 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 Editors-in-Chief.
