Open Access RNA Journals

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

RNA is family of large biological molecules

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 RNA Open Access journals will hopefully make it easier for you to decide where to publish your RNA manuscript.
The list below includes all high-impact factor RNA 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 RNA journals, nonetheless, in our case we have made the list with open access RNA journals in mind.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best RNA 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

Where can I publish my RNA paper?
You can publish your RNA paper in the Open Access journals in this list
What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access refers to free access to information and unrestricted use of electronic resources for everyone. Any kind of digital content can be open access, from texts and data to software, audio, and video.
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?
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 are looking for an author or paper, you can simply type it in the search box above to see your results. If you'd like to see a similar list to this one, check
How can I publish my paper on
Our aim at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not publish any papers. What we do is that once a paper has been published, we index it in so that more people can find and access a journal article.
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?
Different open access types are commonly described using a colour system. The most commonly recognised names are “green”, “gold”, and “hybrid” open access; however, “bronze”, “black”, and “diamond” also exist.
