Aims and scope

Epigenetics & Chromatin is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes research, and reviews, providing novel mechanistic insights into epigenetic inheritance and chromatin-based interactions. The journal aims to understand how gene and chromosomal elements are regulated and their activities maintained during processes such as cell division, differentiation and environmental alteration.

Efficient peer review

Expedited: we recognise that scientifically sound, high quality manuscripts are often turned away from broad-scope "high-impact" journals based on the issue of "general interest." As a specialist journal, Epigenetics & Chromatin will consider rapid publication of such manuscripts if they are submitted as presubmission inquiries together with the original peer reviewer reports, letter of rejection, and a brief rebuttal.
