An open-access journal publishing high‐quality, useful, foundational research in all areas of genetics, publ. by the Genetics Society of America (GSA)
G3: Genes, Genomes, Genetics provides a forum for the publication of high‐quality foundational research, particularly research that generates useful genetic and genomic information such as genome maps, single gene studies, genome‐wide association and QTL studies, as well as genome reports, mutant screens, and advances in methods and technology. The Editorial Board of G3 believes that rapid dissemination of these data is the necessary foundation for analysis that leads to mechanistic insights.
G3, published by the Genetics Society of America, meets the critical and growing need of the genetics community for rapid review and publication of important results in all areas of genetics. G3 offers the opportunity to publish the puzzling finding or to present unpublished results that may not have been submitted for review and publication due to a perceived lack of a potential high-impact finding. As part of our mission to serve our communities, we've published thematic collections, including Genomic Prediction, Multiparental Populations, Genetics of Immunity, and Genetics of Sex. G3 has earned the DOAJ Seal, which is a mark of certification for open access journals, awarded by the Directory of Open Access Journals to journals that achieve a high level of openness, adhering to Best Practices and high publishing standards.
More than just a publisher, the Genetics Society of America is mission-driven and places a high priority on responding to community needs. GENETICSand G3 have long been committed to supporting resources that serve scientists. We were the first journals to partner with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories to enable seamless deposits of manuscripts from our submission systems straight into the preprint server bioRxiv, as well as from bioRxiv to GENETICS and G3, and we have accepted submissions posted for preprint servers since 2012. Articles feature links to model organism databases like SGD, FlyBase, and WormBase. We have also partnered with Overleaf to provide custom templates for authors who use LaTex, saving them time at submission. The annotation tool Remarq is available on both the GENETICS and G3 websites and allows for collaborative commenting and article sharing. Our latest collaboration with Figshare ensures that supplemental material and data files are permanently associated with an article—and that authors aren’t limited by file type or size when providing data that support their work. Early online publication means that research investigations are freely accessible and in PubMed within days of acceptance – which eliminates delays in discovering the latest science.
