Submission guidelines


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.

Our 3-step submission process

  1. Before you submit

    Now you’ve identified a journal to submit to, there are a few things you should be familiar with before you submit.

  2. Ready to submit

    To give your manuscript the best chance of publication, follow these policies and formatting guidelines.

  3. Submit and promote

    After acceptance, we provide support so your article gains maximum impact in the scientific community and beyond.

    Please note that manuscript can only be submitted by an author of the manuscript and may not be submitted by a third party.
