Peer Review Policy
Dr. Holden Thorp is the Editor-in-Chief of Science Advances, supported by a team Deputy and Associate Editors drawn from an international pool of researchers. The journal also has a Managing Editor and several full-time Editorial Coordinators.

Papers sent out for review are assessed by at least two, and often three, subject matter experts before any decision is rendered. Reviewers are blinded to the author as well as each other. The final decision to accept or reject a manuscript is at the discretion of the Deputy Editor.
