Open Access Genome Journals

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

Genome is entirety of an organism's hereditary information; genome of organism (encoded by the genomic DNA) is the (biological) information of heredity which is passed from one generation of organism to the next; is transcribed to produce various RNAs

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.

This list of Genome OA journals will hopefully make it easier for you to have a better idea regarding where your want to publish your Genome manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Genome journals that might be relevant to your field of study.We've made this extensive list of open access Genome 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 Genome 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 Genome journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I publish my Genome paper?
You can publish your Genome paper in the Open Access journals in this list
What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related 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?
If you're interested in seing more lists similar to this one, you can find all our lists on
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?
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)
