Mammalian Genome offers fast publication times, without compromising the quality of peer-reviews. Currently, we average 30 days to the first decision, and 80 days from submission to citable online publication!

Mammalian Genome is a Transformative Journal (TJ). When research is accepted for publication, authors can choose to publish immediate gold Open Access or using the traditional publishing route (which is at no cost).

 Mammalian Genome publishes articles on experimental, theoretical, and technical aspects of genomics and genetics in mouse, human, and other species, particularly those which bear on studies of gene function. The journal welcomes original papers that present novel findings in all areas of mammalian genetic research as well as reviews on areas of topical interest. The journal also features commentary and editorial to alert and inform readers of developments in the areas of mammalian genetics and functional genomics.

Coverage emphasizes gene structure and expression studies; mutagenesis, the characterization of new mutations and the identification of animal models of human genetic disorders; genetic, physical, and comparative mapping, particularly for the study of gene function; genetic analysis of complex traits; informatics related to genome analysis and functional genomics; novel technical approaches.

Mammalian Genome is the official journal of the International Mammalian Genome Society.
