Aims & Scope

On the Cutting-Edge of Gene Editing Research

The CRISPR Journal delivers cutting-edge multidisciplinary peer-reviewed research, advances, and commentary on CRISPR, the extraordinary technology that gives scientists the power to cure disease and sculpt evolution. Spearheaded by Editor-in-Chief Rodolphe Barrangou, PhD and aided by a diverse and accomplished editorial board, the Journal provides a high-profile forum for cutting-edge international original research papers, as well as a compelling mixture of frontmatter content—review articles, perspectives, profiles, and commentary spanning not only matters of research but the many social, ethical, and business issues confronting the field. The CRISPR Journal adds an exciting and dynamic component to the growing global CRISPR community and will be the go-to resource driving the field forward.

Launching in 2018!

The rampant growth of CRISPR technology is driving research in all areas of the life sciences and biotechnology. The CRISPR Journal, a new peer-reviewed publication launching in 2018, will be the voice of the ever-growing CRISPR community, publishing groundbreaking research in a multitude of disciplines, advances in the underlying technology and methodologies, and vigorous discussion and commentary including opinion, commentaries and “news & views” style essays from active researchers. The CRISPR Journal will be must read journal for the rapidly growing community of CRISPR labs around the world.
