As of July 31, 2018, Standards in Genomic Sciences will no longer be accepting genome reports (extended, short, and meta) for consideration. Any genome reports currently submitted to the journal or submitted by the deadline will be published as genome reports if they are accepted.
We will continue to publish genome sequence information, but it will need to be presented in the context of the other available article types.
Aims and scope
Standards in Genomic Sciences is an open access journal for rapid dissemination of concise genome and metagenome reports, detailed standard operating procedures, meeting reports, reviews and commentaries, data policies, white papers and other gray literature that is relevant but currently absent from the scholarly literature.
The Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC) is an open-membership working body formed in September 2005. The goal of this international community is to promote mechanisms that standardize the description of genomes and the exchange and integration of genomic data.
