“We had a great experience with Life. We were late with our submission to the special issue organized by Andre Brack, but Andre and the Editorial office were patient and got our manuscript swiftly into peer review. Three constructively critical reviews came in within three weeks, we were able to revise and turn our manuscript around within two weeks. After acceptance, the proofs came in within three days, after giving us 48 hours for proofreading. The copy editing was excellent. The final article was online within a week. Altogether, the staff and prerformance at MDPI Life was a efficient, friendly and professional. It was a good experience.”

By Laurie Richardson (Author of: Ecology and Physiology of the Pathogenic Cyanobacterium Roseofilum reptotaenium).
“For several decades (some) central dogma(s) dominated biology and life sciences that are falsified meanwhile, such as (i) DNA-RNA-Protein-anything else, (ii) one gene - one protein, (iii) non-coding DNA is junk, (iv) viruses escaped from cellular life, or (v) chance mutations drive genetic novelty. I encourage groundbreaking authors that are willing and competent to take more than one look out of the box to use this highly refreshing alternative to the well known “dinosaurs” in biological sciences to drive a more fundamental and integrative perspective on life.”
By Guenther Witzany (Author of: RNA Sociology: Group Behavioral Motifs of RNA Consortia).
“This really was the peer-review all of us would like: fast, knowledgeable and fair. The review process improved the paper (which, sad to say, is not always the case). Another important point: though one of the reviewers clearly was less enamoured of some of the ideas presented, the second round of the review process demonstrated admirable open-mindedness (‘While I am not in complete agreement with the revision, I believe that the suggestions for research on RNA-small peptide interactions that might come from circulation of this speculation justify its publication.’). The contacts with the editorial staff and editor(s) were speedy and to the point. Last but not least: Life supplies open access at relatively low costs for the author(s).”
By Dave Speijer (Corresponding Author of: How Amino Acids and Peptides Shaped the RNA World).
“The peer review process was of a very high quality and fast. It considerably improved our article. The reviewers were objective and raised very good criticisms. The Guest Editor was very professional. The Editor-in-Chief explained to me patiently and satisfactorily all my questions about the journal Life. All in all, the interactions with the Editors and reviewers were unexpectedly open to any doubts. Without hesitation, I do recommend Life for high quality articles.”
By Marco V. José (Author of: Three-Dimensional Algebraic Models of the tRNA Code and 12 Graphs for Representing the Amino Acids).
“The peer review process was very fast. We were all positively surprised. We were very happy with the reviewers’ suggestions; they were clearly experts in the field, and helped us a lot in order to make our text more understandable. Overall, my experience was very good.”

It was easy to submit the manuscript and I am happy with the end product. This is the second paper I have published here and I hope to see other quality papers in the field.”
By Ken F. Jarrell (Author of: Pilin Processing Follows a Different Temporal Route than That of Archaellins in Methanococcus maripaludis).
“According to our experience the peer-review process was substantially fast yet reviewers’ comments were reasonable and helped to shape better the manuscript. The editorial staff provided us fair support, where all issues have been solved without any delay. Personally, I think that Life represents an efficient platform for publication of research papers and reviews not only with ‘standard’ topics, but also with rather provocative ones stimulating readers for deeper thinking and reconsideration of their understanding of biological phenomena.”
By Anton A. Polyansky (Author of: On the Contribution of Protein Spatial Organization to the Physicochemical Interconnection between Proteins and Their Cognate mRNAs).
“I very much am of the same opinion regarding the “prompt and positive peer review process” of the journal Life, as is reflected in most of the other comments here. The review process was efficient and, I must insist, positive. The overall comments for our article were good. One reviewer, however, had a disagreement with the way our story was pitched. After one round of revision, when the disagreement persisted, the reviewer took the time to explain where he was coming from rather than treating our disagreement with negativity (we did get admonished a bit in the process)! This was refreshing, to say the least, and led to a revision in the ‘pitch of the story’ which, I must say, made our article more complete. We look forward to having a long and fruitful relationship with the journal! We appreciate the prompt responses from the editorial office. Finally, thanks to the EiC and Guest Editor for the opportunity that eventually led us to be a part of this special issue.” By Sudha Rajamani (Author of: Characterization of RNA-Like Oligomers from Lipid-Assisted Nonenzymatic Synthesis: Implications for Origin of Informational Molecules on Early Earth)

The editorial staff also responded to my emails and requests promptly.” By Cheemeng Tan (Author of: Synthetic Biology: A Bridge between Artificial and Natural Cells)
“The invitation to contribute to the special Life issue on ‘The Origins and Early Evolution of RNA’ came at a very opportune time for me. Recent results from my lab in several areas had pointed to a new synthesis of interests I had developed over forty years. Writing the manuscript thus came naturally and allowed me to consider my research in a broader context. It was therefore an exciting experience to produce the manuscript. The Editors were most helpful and the peer review was pleasantly timely, thorough, and constructive. The reviewers’ suggestions allowed me to clarify, correct omissions I had made, and opened new directions that were consistent with what I hoped to accomplish with the manuscript.” By Charles W. Carter Jr. (Author of: What RNA World? Why a Peptide/RNA Partnership Merits Renewed Experimental Attention)

After few days, also the printed version was available. They used very expert reviewers; in fact, their comments and suggestions were not based only on my Introduction or Conclusion, as many other reviewers do.

"I really enjoyed interacting with the editorial staff. They have managed to keep an efficient balance between authority, professionalism, streamlining the review process while maintaining flexibility over special administrative requests. From the submission of the original manuscript, through the review and up to the proofreading of the revised edition, the editorial staff was always standing-by to support and streamline the whole process in a push-pull fashion. The review process was not only fast, but efficient as well. Not only the editorial office were standing-by, but they were also “restless”—in a positive sense—in not letting a day pass without progress, especially when the ball was in their court (revision and proofreading). Clearly the reviewers have gone through a careful check of the submitted manuscript and came back with very interesting comments on critical aspects of the work and suggestions for improving it. Definitely, their suggestions have helped improve the quality of the submitted manuscript in two aspects: they have indicated editorial issues that have improved readability and they have instigated a discussion on some critical/fundamental aspects of the related work. Some of these discussions have been included in the revised manuscript. I understood that Entropy maintains a high level of quality. The reviewers are seasoned experts in their field, and provide authoritative reviews. The review process is streamlined and efficient.

The special guest editor, Dr Max Toepper, took his role seriously and contacted me personally. Three reviewers commented my manuscript and all of them seemed to be familiar with the topic and at least two were clearly experts in the field. My article was reviewed twice before been accepted. I received a written confirmation that this decision had been taken by the special editor. When called, the managing staff was able to answer in German and are truly located in Basel. They are transparent and honest about their editing policy. The staff was professional. MDPI seems to take very seriously its own reputation as a leading open source publisher. I was very sceptic at first, but my experience has convinced me of the good will of the publisher and its competencies in publishing quality articles."

I have been publishing in Q1 journals for quite some time and for the first time I met such operational work with authors and quick publication of an article. I have to note that the speed of the editors do not lead to deterioration in the quality of their work. In particular, I want to mention the high-quality selection of reviewers. In the case of our paper, I was surprised at the high professionalism and great erudition of the experts, as well as their rigorous reviewing and exacting and constructive attitude to the manuscript. Comments and suggestions from the reviewers helped us dramatically improve the paper. Also note the high quality of technical editing of the manuscript.
