1 About The OMICS Research Journal
OMICS Research publishes research articles, new computational methods, databases and software tools in all areas of molecular biology from a system biology perspective, especially highlighting integration analysis of global high-through OMICS data to dissect the molecular mechanisms underlying complex disease and novel bioinformatic analysis approaches based on OMICS data to address specific biomedical problems.

2 Aims & Scope
The journal is an international online, open access and peer-reviewed publication, which enables the rapid publication of papers related to, but not limited to those specialties: OMICS-related system biology, bioinformatics; Computational biology; sequence analysis; Genomics; Epigenomics; Transcriptomics; Proteomics; Transcription regulation; Complex network analysis; Integrated pathway analysis; Disease biomarker; Non-coding RNAs; Pharmacology and small molecule drugs; OMICS-based personalized medicine.

3 Copyright
The authors permanently reserve the copyright for their publications and have granted the rights to any third party in advance for using, reproducing or disseminating the work under the terms of copyright and license of the BioPublisher’s constitutions and adopted law and regulations.

(see BioPublisher peer review policy for further information)

OMICS Research offers a fast publication schedule whilst maintaining rigorous peer review. Normally the publication period is two or four weeks depend on the speed of peer review. Using the recommended manuscript preparation formats will largely speed up the paper procedures and shorten the periods. Research articles will be published electronically in provisional PDF immediately upon acceptance. A fully structured web version and PDF download version will be uploaded within four weeks after acceptance.

OMICS Research is affiliated with other biology journals published by BioPublisher, including Genomics and Applied Biology and other journals. If referees judge that a manuscript is sound but not of special interest and therefore not appropriate for OMICS Research, the referee reports can be shared with other journals published by BioPublisher. Transferring a manuscript from one journal to another will not incur delays. Conversely, if a manuscript submitted to a sister journal in the BioPublisher series is judged to be of exceptional interest by the referees and editors. We may offer publication in OMICS Research.
