Are you ready to submit your manuscript? Please review the submission guidelines and then refer to this checklist to ensure that you have gathered all the relevant information and that the manuscript is properly formatted.

All manuscripts must be submitted using the online submission and tracking system at http://www.editorialmanager.com/molecularresearch/.

If you are sure your work satisfies the basic requirements for publication in GMR, we will be happy to consider your paper.

Successful receipt and processing of the author’s submission will be acknowledged by e-mail once the submitted manuscript has been checked. If no reply has been received within one week, the author should contact the editor at [[email protected] or [email protected]].

Articles are reviewed anonymously by independent peer reviewers. Authors are encouraged to suggest names of expert reviewers, but selection remains the prerogative of the editors. To facilitate the review process, the authors can send supplementary material, such as accepted but not yet published papers that have been cited, which may be important during assessment of the manuscript.

Article processing charge

To provide open access, GMR’s business model offsets expenses—including peer review management, journal production, and online hosting and archiving—by applying an article processing charge for each article published, to be paid by the authors, institutions, or funders.

The article processing fee applied by GMR consists of a submission fee plus a publication fee.
