Genome Biology is an online open access scientific journal that publishes original, peer-reviewed research in genomics - defined broadly to comprehend all aspects of genome-wide science, including many post-genomic studies. It is published by BioMed Central (BMC) Ltd, and is considered their second-tier biology journal (not as prestigious as the Journal of Biology, but more selective than BMC Biology). Unlike the majority of journals published by BMC, however, it is not entirely free to access: although all research articles are free, editorial and review articles require a subscription.
The particular details of this journal's peer-review policy are described here. Furthermore, submitters are asked to disclose conflicts of interest.
The journal is supported in part by advertising.
