As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Featured review: Conservation and diversity of the eukaryotic SAGA coactivator complex across kingdoms

New Content ItemEpigenetics & Chromatin is proud to publish a new review from Sharon Y. R. Dent and Ying-Jiun C. Chen. The SAGA complex is an evolutionarily conserved transcriptional coactivator that regulates gene expression through its histone acetyltransferase and deubiquitylase activities, recognition of specific histone modifications, and interactions with transcription factors. To illuminate the diversity and conservation of this essential complex, our authors discuss variations in composition, essentiality and co-expression of component genes, and its prominent functions across Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia kingdoms.

Aims and scope

Epigenetics & Chromatin is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes research, and reviews, providing novel 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.
