Highest Impact Ejournals
Peer reviewed research journals in bioinformatics, genomics or proteomics, sorted by ISI Impact Factor(highest first).
Impact Factor = 13.61, published by Cold Spring Harbor, 1995-
An international, continuously published, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on research that provides novel insights into the genome biology of all organisms, including advances in genomic medicine.
Genomebiology.com (Genome biology)
Impact Factor = 9.04, published by BioMed Central, 2000-
Forum for the dissemination, discussion and critical review of information about all areas of biology informed by genomic research. Key objectives are to provide a guide to the rapidly developing resources and technology in genomics and its impact on biological research, to publish large datasets and extensive results that are not readily accommodated in traditional journals, and to help establish new standards and nomenclature for post-genomic biology.
Molecular systems biology
Impact Factor = 8.63, published by Nature, 2005-.
An online-only, open access journal, ... covers all aspects of the rapidly growing and interdisciplinary field of systems biology at the molecular level, and will attract and help shape the highest quality research in the evolving areas of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, microbial systems, and the integration of cell signaling and regulatory networks.
Nucleic acids research
Impact Factor = 8.03, published by Oxford Univ. Press, 1974-.
Now following an OpenAccess model, free to all, NAR "publishes the results of leading edge research into physical, chemical, biochemical and biological aspects of nucleic acids and proteins involved in nucleic acid metabolism and/or interactions." Includes separate NAR Methods Online & annual Databases & Web Server issues.
Molecular and cellular proteomics : MCP
Impact Factor = 7.4, published by Am. Soc. for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, 2002-.
The scope of the journal, reflected in its title, is purposefully broad. ... open to contributions that describe the structural and functional properties of proteins and their expression, particularly with respect to developmental time courses. Emphasis will be placed on determining how the presence or absence of proteins affect biological responses, and how the interaction of proteins with germane cellular partners allows them to function.
Impact Factor = 5.47, published by Oxford Univ. Press, 1998-.
Publishes the highest quality scientific papers and review articles of interest to academic and industrial researchers. Its main focus is on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology.
PLoS computational biology
Impact Factor = 5.22, published by PLoS, 2005-
An open access journal that "features works of exceptional significance that further our understanding of living systems at all scales—from molecules and cells, to patient populations and ecosystems—through the application of computational methods..." . Author fees may be covered by UM Libraries. See Open Access pages.
Briefings in bioinformatics
Impact Factor = 5.2, published by Oxford Univ. Press, 2000-
Publishes reviews for the users of databases and analytical tools of contemporary genetics, molecular and systems biology and is unique in providing practical help and guidance to the non-specialist in computerized methodology...
Journal of proteomics
Impact Factor = 4.88, published by Elsevier, 2008-
The official journal of the European Proteomics Association (EuPA) and is aimed at both European and international protein scientists and analytical chemists in the field of proteomics, biomarker discovery, protein analytics, plant proteomics, microbial and animal proteomics, human studies and protein bioinformatics.
The pharmacogenomics journal
Impact Factor = 4.54, published by Nature, 2001-
"Dedicated to the rapid publication of original research on pharmacogenomics and its clinical applications"... including
"Integration of new developments in the genome project and proteomics into clinical medicine, pharmacology, and therapeutics
Clinical applications of genomic science
Identification of novel genomic targets for drug development
Potential benefits of pharmacogenomics."
Impact Factor = 4.51, published by Wiley, 2001-.
Source for information on all aspects of applications and technologies in proteomics. It provides the most comprehensive coverage in the field, spanning significant technical developments in all major gel and non-gel based proteomic platforms and their application in every area of life sciences.
Impact Factor = 2.75, published by BioMed Central, 2000-
"An open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the development, testing and novel application of computational and statistical methods for the modeling and analysis of all kinds of biological data, as well as other areas of computational biology."
