Publishing model:

Aims and scope


Chromosome Research publishes original research articles, reviews, brief communications, case reports, methodology articles, debates, correspondences and comments from work based on all organisms and encourages submissions in the following areas including, but not limited, to:

  • Chromosomes and their linkage to diseases;
  • Chromosome organization within the nucleus;
  • Chromatin biology (transcription, non-coding RNA, etc);
  • Chromosome structure, function and mechanics;
  • Chromosome and DNA repair;
  • Epigenetic chromosomal functions (centromeres, telomeres, replication, imprinting, dosage compensation, sex determination, chromosome remodeling);
  • Architectural/epigenomic organization of the genome;
  • Functional annotation of the genome;
  • Functional and comparative genomics in plants and animals;
  • Karyology studies that help resolve difficult taxonomic problems or that provide clues to fundamental mechanisms of genome and karyotype evolution in plants and animals;
  • Mitosis and Meiosis;
  • Cancer cytogenomics.

The Editors of Chromosome Research will gladly consider papers that confirm, extend or refute results published elsewhere. We also offer expedited review of manuscripts as well as papers previously submitted to other journals, provided that the authors append previous reviewers' and/or editorial comments. We recognize that speed is important in publishing your findings and we will work with you to ensure a rapid publication.
Any questions and pre-submission enquiries (useful to expedite the review process) should be addressed to the Editor-in-Chief, Beth Sullivan, PhD, directly.
