General information ?

  • Published by: Oxford University Press
  • ISSN: 2047-217X
  • Last checked date: 02/2020
  • Scope: Big-data studies not only from biology, but also the growing range of more difficult-to-access data, such as imaging, neuroscience, ecology, cohort data, systems biology and other new types of large-scale shareable data.
  • Additional free text: "We are unique in the publishing industry as we publish ALL research objects (data, software tools, source code, workflows, bioboxes/docker and other elements related to the work underpinning the findings in the article). We do this within the context of a variety of article types, including Research, Data Notes, Technical Notes, Reviews and Commentaries. Our goal is to revolutionize publishing by improving research reproducibility and data dissemination, organization, understanding, and re-use. To achieve our goals, the journal has a novel publication format: one that links standard manuscript publication with an extensive database that hosts all associated data, provides data analysis tools and cloud-computing resources. Coupled with this, we have also built a Galaxy-based data analysis platform to host computational methods and workflows, maximizing use of the data, tools and workflows in our articles in a more accessible and reproducible environment."
