GigaScience aims to revolutionize data dissemination, organization, understanding, and use. An online open-access open-data journal, we publish 'big-data' studies from the entire spectrum of life and biomedical sciences. To achieve our goals, the journal has a novel publication format: one that links standard manuscript publication with an extensive database (GigaDB) that hosts all associated data, as well as provides data analysis tools through our GigaGalaxy server. Further promoting transparency in the review process, we have open review as standard for all our peer-reviewed papers.
Our scope covers not just 'omic' type data and the fields of high-throughput biology currently serviced by large public repositories, but also the growing range of more difficult-to-access data, such as imaging, neuroscience, ecology, cohort data, systems biology and other new types of large-scale shareable data.
- Allows reviews to be publicly displayed
- Allows reviewers to display the title of the article they reviewed
- Does not allow reviewers to sign or publicly display reviews of rejected publications subsequently published in another journal
