Open Access Computational biology Journals

A list of Open Access Computational biology journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Computational biology is data-analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and computational simulation techniques to the study of biological, behavioral, and social systems

All articles published in Open Access journals have undergone peer review and upon acceptance are immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.

This list of Computational biology Open Access journals will hopefully make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Computational biology manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Computational biology journals that may be relevant to your field of study. In any case, we've also included other journals that may also offer more affordable publishing fees.In many cases, you only see lists of Computational biology journals, nonetheless, in our case we have made the list with open access Computational biology journals in mind.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Computational biology venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Computational biology journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access aims to provide immediate and unrestricted access to research articles while along you to also share it freely
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
In the table above, relevance is used to determine the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often articles from a journal have been referenced in other works. We get this data from OpenAlex.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or paper, you can simply type it in the search box above to see your results. If you'd like to see a similar list to this one, check
How can I publish my paper on
Our focus at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is the fee that publishers of some open access journals charge in order to publish articles.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, b) Hybrid Open Access, c) Green Open Access, d) Bronze Open Access, e) Diamond Open Access, or f) Black Open Access
