Oxford University Press (OUP) and the Genetics Society of America (GSA) are pleased to announce that OUP will publish the GSA journals GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics beginning January 2021.

GENETICS is a peer-reviewed, peer-edited journal with an international reach and increasing visibility and impact. Since 1916, GENETICS has published high-quality, original research presenting novel findings bearing on genetics and genomics. While it has an illustrious history, the journal has changed along with the communities it serves, innovating and expanding to include new content types and essential thematic collections.

G3 is a fully open access journal that provides a forum for the publication of high‐quality foundational research generating useful genetic and genomic information. The journal meets the critical and growing need of the genetics community for rapid review and publication of important results in all areas of genetics. G3 has earned the DOAJ Seal, a mark of certification awarded by the Directory of Open Access Journals to publications that achieve a high level of openness and adhere to best practices and high publishing standards.

“We look forward to working collaboratively with Oxford University Press to advance GSA’s mission,” Tracey DePellegrin, GSA Executive Director, said of the partnership. “With the help of OUP’s publishing experience and digital capabilities, we can continue placing the highest priority on serving our members and community in publishing essential research, while exploring new opportunities to broaden the reach of GENETICS and G3 in terms of authors, readers, editors, and reviewers. 

Alison Denby, Vice President, Journals, at Oxford University Press also commented: “We are delighted to partner with the Genetics Society of America to publish their prestigious journals. We look forward to working with GSA and the journals’ editorial teams to further develop the excellent reputation of these titles and help position them for future success.”

About GSA

Founded in 1931, the Genetics Society of America (GSA) is the professional membership organization for scientific researchers and educators in the field of genetics. Our members work to advance knowledge in the basic mechanisms of inheritance, from the molecular to the population level. GSA serves an international community of scientists who use genetics to make new discoveries and improve lives. We advance biological research by supporting professional development of scientists, by communicating advances and fostering collaboration through scholarly publishing and conferences, and by advocating for science and for scientists. We seek to cultivate an inclusive, diverse research community that engages with the public, communicates the excitement and implications of discovery, and serves as an authoritative source of information.
