EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD and their editorial experience

EDITORIAL EXPERTISE for Discoveries and Discoveries Reports

     The Editorial ADVISORY BOARD analyses and provides recommendations on all scientific, ethical and editorial aspects of the process:

Our Senior Editors (also members of the Advisory Board) are selected from well recognized researchers either in leadership positions (chairs/directors of research institutes/departments/divisions; research programs directors) or with extensive editorial experience gained with other journals. These are ones of the most respected researchers/clinicians in their fields of specialization. Their expertise and advice is critical for maintaining high editorial and publishing standards, and for an optimal development of the journal. Currently, we are proud of our over 120 Editors and 53 members of our Advisory Board.

More than half of our Advisory Board's members and many of the regular Editors also serve as Editors for a wide range of peer-reviewed journals in the fields of medicine, biology, chemistry and related disciplines. At least 5 of our Senior Editors have Editor-in-Chief experience with other journals. 20 examples are mentioned here:
Alex Almasan, PhD (Editor - Drug Discoveries & Therapeutics; Guest Editor – Cells) ,
Victor Velculescu, MD, PhD (Editor - Cancer Discovery (leading AACR journal); Editor – eLife),
Jack Lawler, PhD (Guest Editor – Current Drug Targets),
Sorin Draghici, PhD (Editor - IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology & International Journal of Functional Informatics and Personalized Medicine),
George A. Calin, MD, PhD (Editor-in-Chief - Non-Coding RNA; Editor – Molecular Cancer Research),
Towia A. Libermann, PhD (Editor-in-Chief - Open Proteomics Journal; Editor - Cancer Research),
Brent T. Harris, MD, PhD (Editor - Journal of Neurological Disorders),
Nicole Suciu-Foca, PhD (former Editor-in-Chief - Human Immunology (1997-2003)),
George C. Tsokos, MD (Editor-in-Chief - Clinical Immunology; editor of over 50 journals),
Dario Marchetti, PhD (Editor-in-Chief - The Journal of Gene Therapy; editor/editorial board of Cancer Microenvironment, Tumor Viruses, Vascular Cell, Clinical & Experimental Pathology, International Journal of Oncology, Cancer Letters, Journal of Cellular Biochemistry & Cancer Metastasis Reviews),
Stefan N. Constantinescu (Editor - Journal of Normal and Malignant Hemopoiesis & JCMM),
Stefan Riedel (Editor - Journal of Clinical Microbiology),
Ramon Parsons (Editor - Cancer Research (AACR) and other journals),
Garth L. Nicolson (served on the Editorial Boards of over 25 medical and scientific journals),
Dorina Avram (Editorial Board - International Journal of Biotechnology Research),
Dale F. Mierke (Editor - Journal of Peptide Science),
Nikolaos G. Frangogiannis (Editor - Circulation Research & J Lab Clin Med),
Joachim Jankowski (Editor - Biomarker, Kidney International, Clinical proteomics & World J Nephrol),
Bhanu P. Jena (Editor for several peer-reviewerd, international journals),
Des R. Richardson (Editor - Vitamins & Minerals),

In addition to our Senior Editors/Advisory Board Members, Discoveries' Editorial Board is completed by over 65 Editors, internationally recognized scientists with significant contributions to science. The Editorial Board is expanding to form a diverse team of experts in all fields related to Biology, Medicine and Chemistry.
MINIMAL REQUIREMENTS NEEDED TO BECOME AN EDITOR: with very few exceptions, the existing editors were previously recommended and endorsed by an existing Senior Editor or the Editors-in-Chief. Currently, we only accept researchers that are principal investigators at the assistant professor/group leader levels or above, who published a minimum of 10 articles in recognized peer-reviewerd articles, with a minimum of 4 articles as the main author (first/shared first, corresponding/shared corresponding author). These minimum requirements do not guarantee the acceptance as an Editor and additional evaluation of the researcher's accomplishments is performend by the Senior Editors and the Editors-in-Chief. Previous editorial expertise is highly recommented. Exceptions of the minimum requirements can be made only if the applicant has a proven record of Nature, Science or Cell-family publications as the main author, which significantly impacted the scientific progress. 

We thank to all our Editors and Advisory Board members for their useful recommendations, constructive critiques and appreciations expressed during our over 10 years of existence! All your constructive and encouraging comments made our progress happen!

    WE DO NOT TOLERATE ANY MISCONDUCT! Please be aware that we are testing all received articles with specialized software for PLAGIARISM and WE WILL TAKE MEASURES if your article is already published or in consideration for publication by other journals! This may result in serious professional consequences for the authors. The latest striking case is the following article which is already published and was re-submitted here.

  • 2019, September | Indexed by PMC

    Discoveries is now indexed by PubMedCentral and Pubmed. The agreement with US National Library of Medicine was signed on September 10, 2019. Our next step is ISI Web of Science indexing. NOTE: previously published articles will be included on PubMed in early 2020.

  • April 2016 | Faster Peer-Review

    Starting on April 13th, all articles selected for a peer-review will receive the post peer-review decision within 10 days. The initial pre-screening time will remain the same (48h from the submission of the manuscript). This decision will significantly accelerate the publication, with no effect on the quality of the peer-review process.

  • February 2016 | Manuscript submission

    Discoveries is commited to excellence, quality and high editorial standards. We are receiving an increasing number of manuscripts for which the identity of the authors/corresponding author can't be verified. Please NOTE that ALL these articles were and will be immediately REJECTED. Indicating an institutional email address is the easiest way to overcome this problem! Moreover, we do not accept any pressure on our editorial board to accept a manuscript. This results in a prompt rejection of the article.
