Open Access microRNA Journals

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

microRNA is small non-coding RNA molecule (of ca. 22 nucleotides) found in plants, animals and some viruses, that functions in RNA silencing and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression

Open access (OA) is a key part of making research shareable and reproducable. All journal articles published open access undergoe the same rigorous peer review process.

This list of microRNA Open Access journals will hopefully make it easier for you to decide where to publish your microRNA manuscript.
The list below includes all high-impact factor microRNA journals as well as new up and comming journals where it might also be more affordable to publish.In many cases, you only see lists of microRNA journals, nonetheless, in our case we have made the list with open access microRNA journals in mind.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best microRNA 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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?
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 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'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?
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?
The most common types are “Green Open Access”, “Gold Open Access” and “Hybrid Open Access”.
