Open Access Genetics

at Taylor & Francis

Our genetics portfolio includes a range of journals focusing on specialised fields of genetics such as mitochondrial DNA, RNA and epigenetics. We also publish many journals across the life sciences which link to genetics including journals in developmental biology, plant science, cell biology and more. Through our portfolio, you can find articles on genetic modification of crops and food, genome sequencing, genetic engineering, genome editing techniques and molecular genetics.

Open access publication can enable increased visibility and discoverability as open access articles can be read by anyone around the world. For authors, this greater visibility can result in increased readership and citations, and a chance to make an impact beyond their field. Our open access portfolio offers an outlet for the rapid dissemination of research including journals such as Mitochondrial DNA Part B which provides a valuable resource for reports on the full sequence of mitochondrial genomes. Our wider open select portfolio includes titles such as RNA Biology, Epigenetics, Amyloid, Cell Cycle and GM Crops & Food to name a few.

Explore our genetics journals below to find out more about the journals in our Open Access and Open Select portfolio.

Mitochondrial DNA Part B

Mitochondrial DNA Part B: Resources publishes high quality Mitochondrial DNA Announcement Papers (short reports on whole mitochondrial DNA genomes) and Short Communications. It is the open access sister journal to Mitochondrial DNA Part A.

The journal considers high-quality short communications (mitocommunications) on the following topics:

  • Physical, chemical, and biochemical aspects of mtDNA and proteins involved in mtDNA metabolism, and/or interactions
  • Population genetics, phylogenetics and human evolution that use mitochondrial DNA as a source of evidence for studies
  • Human mitochondrial disorders and the utility of mitochondrial DNA information in medical studies
  • Unique methodological or algorithmic approaches to the analysis of mtDNA data sets.

Prion

Prion is the first international peer-reviewed open access journal to focus exclusively on protein folding and misfolding, protein assembly disorders, protein-based and structural inheritance.

The goal of the journal is to foster communication and rapid exchange of information through timely publication of important results using traditional as well as electronic formats. The overriding criteria for publication in Prion are originality, scientific merit and general interest. 

The journal has a 2018 Impact Factor of 1.596, and a 2018 Five-Year Impact Factor of 2.181.
