Proteome Science 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 submitted manuscripts are evaluated by the Editors-in-Chief or Managing Editor and suitable manuscripts proceed to peer review, being assigned to an Associate Editor where appropriate. Comments are sought from at least two reviewers. We make every effort to reach an initial decision within six weeks of submission. Based on the reviews, the Editors-in-Chief, Managing Editor or Associate Editor rejects, accepts or requests revisions of the manuscript.
Proteome Science considers the following types of article: Research article, Methodology, and Review. For more specific information, please take a look at our Submission Guidelines.
Proteome Science is affiliated with the Korean Human Proteome Organization (KHUPO). KHUPO is a global leader in both domestic and global proteomics research, establishing an industry-academia-government joint cooperation system to effectively carry out global proteome projects and research such as the human genome project.
