Aims and Scope

Science Immunology publishes original, peer-reviewed, science-based research articles that report critical advances in all areas of immunological research, including important new tools and techniques. The editors encourage submission of original research findings from all areas within the broad field of immunology from all model organisms, including humans. Areas covered range from basic studies into the biology of innate and adaptive immunity (immune cell development and differentiation, immunogenomics, systems immunology, structural immunology, antigen presentation, immunometabolism, and mucosal immunology) to immune contributions to health and disease (host defense, inflammation, cancer immunology, autoimmunity, allergy, transplantation, and immunodeficiency).

Latest review

Outcome: Drawn back.

The editors in Science Immunology are very absent. My manuscript was transferred to Science Immunology, but after two months, it stays in limbo without any action from the editor. The status has not changed a single time after the transfer, and the editor has not even had a quick glance at the manuscript. This really makes me upset. I have been sending emails to the editor after 7 weeks, but he never replied (meanwhile being fairly active on Twitter). It seems that many people (including my colleagues) have the same experience with Science Immunology. So one should be really patient and good-tempered if you decide to submit to this journal.
Excellent process
