Open Access Phylogenetics Journals

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

Phylogenetics is study of the evolutionary history and relationships among individuals or groups of organisms; application of molecular - analytical methods in the explanation of phylogeny and its research

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.

Our team made this list of Phylogenetics Open Access journals with the aim to help you to decide where to publish your Phylogenetics manuscript.
The list below includes all high-impact factor Phylogenetics journals as well as new up and comming journals where it might also be more affordable to publish.Rather than displaying just the most relevant Phylogenetics journals, we have made an in-depth list of all the open accesss Phylogenetics journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Phylogenetics 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.

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?
If a journal has a relevance of “100”, that means that the journal is fully related to the concept it is listed under. If, on the other hand, a journal has a relevance of “0”, that means that the journal doesn’t have any relation to the topic it is listed under. So Nutrition might have a low relevance when included in Open Computer Science Journals
How do you count total number of citations?
