Investigative Genetics series on 'DNA Fingerprinting'


Investigative Genetics is inviting submissions for a new article series on ‘DNA Fingerprinting’. Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys, who is due to retire this year, will be acting as an Advisory Editor for the collection in recognition of his groundbreaking work in this field.

This special collection of articles is open for the submission of research articles on all aspects of DNA fingerprinting in its widest sense and across disciplines. In addition, a series of commissioned reviews on the past, present and future of DNA fingerprinting in areas such as forensics, zoology, botany, microbiology, anthropology and medicine will feature as part of the collection.


Investigative Genetics is a peer-reviewed, open access, online journal, which publishes articles on the development and application of molecular genetics in a wide range of science disciplines with societal relevance.


To submit your manuscript, please use our online submission system and indicate in your covering letter that you would like it to be considered for the series, or alternatively, send a pre-submission enquiry to
