Human Genomics 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.
Publication of research articles by Human Genomics is dependent primarily on their scientific validity and coherence as judged by the Editor-in-Chief, Editorial Board, and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field.
