Genetics Society Of America
The Genetics Society of America publishes two scholarly journals: GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics. Both journals are run by scientists, for scientists, and embody the principles of peer-editing, where every editor who makes a decision on manuscripts submitted to GENETICS and to G3 is a practicing scientist. The journals support the mission of GSA, offering two distinct scholarly platforms for the communication of high-quality, original genetics research and key foundational discoveries. As sister journals, GENETICS and G3 are uniquely positioned to publish blocks of related articles, including the Mouse Collaborative Cross and Genomic Selection, with additional such projects in the works, including the Genetics of Immunity. With over 160 editors and two editorial boards between them, and with broad and deep community ties, GENETICS and G3 are well-positioned as leaders in collaborative science. Although the scope and mission of each journal are distinct, both GENETICS and G3 provide clear, fair decisions on submitted manuscripts in around a month. And both journals are committed to open access to data c with the guiding principle of making geneticists' work accessible and available to the community, recording scientific progress and catalyzing further advances. Article-level links to model organism databases further increase article impact. Publication of data, ideas, and conclusions is the bedrock of science. The GSA Journals believe that practicing scientists must play a central role in that process. Many journals will publish primary research papers, but few carry the imprimatur of an organization of peers with a long history of supporting and promoting the discipline. The Genetics Society of America has an illustrious record in scientific publishing with its groundbreaking journal GENETICS, the first American journal of genetics, established in 1916 by the founders of our field. G3, as a sister journal of GENETICS, continues the tradition of science run by scientists. Also published by the Genetics Society of America, G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics is an open access journal that meets the critical and growing need of the genetics community for rapid review and publication of important results in all areas of genetics. The journal offers the opportunity to publish puzzling findings and useful results without a requirement that they be high-impact. G3 is published monthly, online.
