Genome Note - F1000 Research

Genome Note

Maximize the potential of your research data with Genome Notes on F1000Research

Submit now

In the fast-changing world of genomics, visibility and openness of research is essential for scientific development and discovery. As well as publishing a traditional research article across genomics, you can submit a Genome Note to maximize your impact and reach. At F1000Research, we believe that researchers should gain credit for all aspects of their work through open, rapid publication.

Genome Notes are brief descriptions of genome sequences that promote the potential reuse of sequences and include details of why and how the genomes are sequenced; they do not include any analyses or conclusions. Genome Notes submitted to the platform should support the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable). All Genome Notes will be hosted in the new Genome Sequencing gateway on F1000Research.

These publications are fully peer-reviewed and published open access, allowing you to tell the full story of your research.

What are the benefits of publishing a Genome Note on F1000Research?

  • Maximize the potential of your research data, sharing genome sequences in a highly discoverable, useable and reproducible way.
  • Credit where it’s due: Genome Notes are peer-reviewed in a fully citable publication with a DOI, offering recognition and credit to genome sequences.
  • Increase the discoverability of your research: Once your Genome Note has passed peer review, inclusion in Scopus, PubMed, Google Scholar and other major indexers will help it reach more readers.
  • Foster new collaborations across disciplines: Publishing your research openly and transparently makes it more discoverable, increasing opportunities for replication, reproducibility and future collaborations.

Genome Sequencing Gateway

The Genome Sequencing Gateway highlights all genome sequenced published on F1000Research. With the advent of improved DNA sequencing technology this gateway is a venue where genome data of all organisms (including animal, plant, fungus, bacterium, archaea, protist and virus) can be shared quickly and easily to help maximize impact in the community.
