Open Access Gene Journals

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

Gene is basic physical and functional unit of heredity

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

We hope this list of Gene OA journals will be helpful for you in deciding where to publish your Gene manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Gene journals that might be relevant to your field of study.Rather than just the top hits Gene journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Gene journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Gene 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 Gene journals in this list are indexed in OA.mg.
If you spot any mistakes in this table of Gene OA journals, don’t hesitate to send us an email.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I publish my Gene paper?
You can publish your Gene paper in the Open Access journals in this list
What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access (OA) is a set of principles and practices through which research is freely distributed online
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the strength of association between this journal being listed and the concept, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Research In Mechanical Engineering has a relevance of “0” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has no relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often works from this journal are referenced in other research papers. This data is obtained from OpenAlex. Even though the accuracy is debatable, it could help you determine how prestigious a journal is on the whole.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists, look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
We do not offer publishing services. If you'd like to get your paper published, I would suggest you find a journal that suits your needs.
What is an APC?
Article Processing Charges (APCs) are charged to authors of scholarly articles during the publication process. APCs are used by open access journals.
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)
