Editorial Board

Over 140 members of the genetics community serve on the Editorial Board of PLOS Genetics, making decisions about whether submitted manuscripts meet the journal’s publication criteria.

The editorial process is run as a partnership between the Editors-in-Chief, a team of Section Editors, and a group of academic experts who act as Associate Editors.
