Open Access DNA Journals

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

DNA is molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses

Open Access journals publish research articles that are free to to view and download. The main difference between articles in open access journals and those in closed journals is the business model. Both types of articles have to undergo the same peer review process.

This list of DNA OA journals will hopefully make it easier for you to have a better idea regarding where your want to publish your DNA manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor DNA journals as well as new journals. This should give you a better idea on where you should publish. We've made this extensive list of open access DNA journals so you can get a better overview of all the journals where you can publish open access.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best DNA 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 DNA journals in this list are indexed in OA.mg.

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?
It refers to the level of association between a journal being listed and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Physics Through Computation has a relevance of “100” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations demonstrate how frequently publications from this journal are cited in other papers. We obtain this information via OpenAlex. Although the accuracy is questionable, it might nevertheless aid you in gaining an understanding of how prestigious a publication is overall.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists under different topics, look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
That's exactly why we made these lists, so you can find a journal that will publish your paper. We at OA.mg don't offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
Authors usually have to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review, publishing, and dissemination of published papers in a given journal.
What are the different Open Access types?
Although there are Gold, Green, Hybrid, Bronze, Diamond, and Black Open Access licenses, here are the most common ones: Full Gold Open Access: article is freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Hybrid Open Access: refers to a publishing model in which subscription-based journals allow authors to make individual articles gold open access immediately on payment of an article publication charge. Green Open Access: refers to the possibility to make subscription-based journal articles open access by uploading the peer-reviewed and accepted author manuscript to an institutional repository (such as DiVA)
