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 / 10Shao-Chen Sun –– This study applies melatonin into transgenetic animal production.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jun Chen –– The article provides a timely and informative comparison of the state-of-the-art error-correction pipelines. The presented results can guide the selection of appropriate pipelines that suit the research needs.
Section Editor rating: 9 / 10James Reimer –– Re-running of an experiment almost 50 years later, with significant positive differences in corals, suggesting some acclimatization/adaptation to climate change - an important paper for not only coral reef science but climate change studies!
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– The authors describe new finds of a widespread trace fossil and manage to use it to constrain the anatomy of its producer. It will therefore be relevant for ichnologist, (paleo)biologists and (paleo)ecologists.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Carlos Conte-Junior –– This paper is very relevant in food microbiology.
