Aims and scope

BMC Genomic Data, previously known as BMC Genetics, is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that welcomes submissions that describe genomic and genetic research data, report new analyses of genomic data and introduce community databases. We promote open science through the sharing of data.

The journal welcomes submissions in these broad areas:
- DNA or RNA sequencing of any species
- Genomic or transcriptomic datasets
- Epigenomics and Epigenetics
- Genotyping
- Proteomics and metabolomics
- Meta-analysis of genomic studies
- Databases or other technologies that advance data sharing
- Fair re-use of publicly-available data for novel analyses
- Reproduction of previous studies for the purposes of re-analysing or updating

As a supporter of the FAIR Data principles, release of data in one or more public, community-recognised repositories is a condition of publication, with reasonable exceptions.

Resources for authors

Standards of reporting

BMC Genomic Data advocates complete and transparent reporting of research. The BMC minimum standards of reporting checklist is intended as a tool for authors to transparently describe their research and ensure reproducibility. We encourage our authors to adhere to these standards when preparing their manuscript.

Research Data Support for authors

Research Data Support is an optional Springer Nature service available to researchers who have datasets they want to make easier to cite, share and find. Learn more about this service and the many benefits of making your data publicly available.
