PeerJ, the journal, is now divided into separate Sections by field.
Section Editors have oversight of their section to ensure the journal maintains a fair peer review process and the highest standards of scientific practice in their fields.
Within each Section, the Academic Editors regularly identify and highlight the most important new PeerJ publications in their field. Learn more & Meet the Section Editors.
Editor rating: 7 / 10James Reimer –– Very interesting deep-sea work combining basic biodiversity studies with ecology, with important implications for competition and populations in these understudied ecosystems.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Scott Wallen –– The bacterial communities and their distributions are critical for understanding the efficacy of this system and the results presented give the first data on this for the GSAP Microflush toilet.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Amanda Toland –– This article identified microRNAs whose expression may be useful for prognosis in colorectal cancer. Findings from this study may help to drive prospective clinical studies to evaluate the utility of these microRNAs.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Patricia Gandini –– An important long term study that show how populations change to different conditions and how to sample this variations, an important tool to conserve and protect right whales
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xavier Pochon –– This interesting study provides some of the fundamental method development for using DNA from soft bodied invertebrates in biological monitoring without destroying the specimens.
