All articles are published using a fully transparent, author-driven model: Invited peer review takes place openly after publication, and the authors play a crucial role in ensuring that the article is peer-reviewed by independent experts in a timely manner.
Articles that pass peer review are indexed in PubMed and elsewhere. In addition to scholarly articles, Gates Open Research publishes other research outputs, collectively called documents, such as end-of-grant reports or guidelines, that vary in formats and often differ from traditional scholarly publications.

Gates Open Research is an Open Research platform: There is no Editor or Editor-in-Chief to make a decision on whether to accept or reject the article, or to oversee the peer-review process. Gates Open Research has a small Advisory Board of leading experts across the fields covered by Gates research grants, who provide strategic input.
The editorial team will ensure that the authors are eligible to publish on Gates Open Research and that articles represent scholarly communications that adhere to author guidelines and the ethical and editorial policiesincluding data policies.
The team will also check that the article is intelligible and written in good English, so it is suitable for peer review and its content can be fully assessed by invited peer reviewers and readers.
If a submission fails the initial checks, it will be returned to the authors to address the issues, and if they are not resolved satisfactorily, the article will be rejected.
Documents submitted to Gates Open Research undergo a basic screen before publication to ensure that they meet criteria and format requirements for Documents. Once the article is published, expert referees are invited.
The peer review is administered on behalf of the authors by the editorial team.

Documents published on Gates Open Research do not undergo any invited peer review; readers can provide comments through the Comment facility.
Before publication, authors are asked to suggest 5 potential referees, who must meet our basic criteria for referees. Authors can suggest referees who they know are experts in their fields; we also provide a tool that suggests referee candidates who have published on the topic presented in the article.
The editorial team will ask authors to suggest more referees until at least two reports have been published. They must have published as lead authors at least 5 articles in international journals. Referees must have reached a certain level of qualification in the life sciences, usually a PhD or MD and have a formal appointment at a recognised institution or organization.
Referees must not be working at the same institute as the authors, should not be close collaborators of the authors or in other ways personally, financially or professionally associated with them.
Referees must declare any conflicts of interest on the published report. They are generally asked to assess whether the research is scientifically sound, that is: In addition to their written report, referees also select one of three statuses: No or only minor changes are required.
This means that the experimental design, including controls and methods, is adequate; results are presented accurately and the conclusions are justified and supported by the data. The article is not fully technically sound in its current version, but the reviewer's criticisms could be addressed with specific, sometimes major, revisions.
The article is of very poor quality and there are fundamental flaws in the article that seriously undermine the findings and conclusions.
The approval status is shown on the article, together with the referee's name and affiliation, and the detailed report supporting the status they selected. Referees who have been invited to assess a specific article may find these at-a-glance referee guidelines helpful; they also explain the benefits of refereeing for Gates Open Research.If you are looking to see what you know about the life of Bill Gates, use the quiz and worksheet.
