About Gene Editing

The Gene Editing journal: Young, open, and free!

Gene editing (also called genome editing) technologies provide scientists an engineering tool box to modify any DNA or RNA element of an organism's genome of interest. These technologies allow genetic material to be added, removed, or altered at particular and targeted locations in the genome. Gene editing technologies are very young, so we are.

Gene Editing” is a peer-reviewed journal, which is publishing in all fields of genetic modification techniques including gene editing, genome editing, gene correction, gene therapy, gene correction in rare diseases, engineered immunotherapies, CRISPR-Cas9, nucleases including but not limited to TALENs and ZFNs, human genetics, genetically modified organisms (GMO), gene editing in molecular pathways involved in gene repair, and gene biology with scientific originality, medical importance, and significant conclusions. The journal of the “Gene Editing” welcomes any studies performed with gene editing applications in the fields of health, animals, plants, microorganisms, and food supply. New technologies, tools and therapeutic approaches related to gene therapy, animal and plant genetics are especially the interest of the “Gene Editing”. The journal also publishes reviews in the fields of biomedical applications, molecular genetics, and bioengineering.

The manuscripts to be published are selected after a peer-review process carried out by our board of experts and scientists. The goal of the "Gene Editing" journal is to improve the research culture and help knowledge spread rapidly by providing an academic platform in the rapidly expanding field of gene editing. Science should be accessible to everybody and free, so we are open and free. 

Published articles in the "Gene Editing" are available online at www.genediting.net. Studies to include the "Gene Editing" journal in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E), PubMed, and Google Scholar are in progress.

Innovation in peer review & rebuttal process

The “Gene Editing” journal brings innovation in peer-review and rebuttal process, which allows authors to receive feedback from reviewers as soon as they are submitted to the Gene Editing. This allows authors to edit their articles accordingly and respond to referees promptly to facilitate the rapid editing and resubmission of their manuscripts. This has a huge impact on the rapid peer-review process and resubmissions. Besides, authors are informed instantly if there are any referee appointments and acceptance through email, which is another innovation we brought in the Gene Editing review process. This significantly shortens the time between the submission and publication in the journal. 

To see how it works, we invite your original work to be submitted to the Gene Editing!

Stay tuned!
