Genes and Environment is an open access peerreviewed journal that aims to accelerate communications among global scientists working in the field of genes and environment. The journal publishes articles across a broad range of topics including environmental mutagenesis and carcinogenesis environmental genomics and epigenetics molecular epidemiology genetic toxicology and regulatory sciences.Topics published in the journal include but are not limited to mutagenesis and antimutagenesis in bacteria genotoxicity in mammalian somatic cells genotoxicity in germ cells replication and repair DNA damage metabolic activation and inactivation water and air pollution ROS NO and photoactivation pharmaceuticals and anticancer agents radiation endocrine disrupters indirect mutagenesis threshold new techniques for environmental mutagenesis studies DNA methylation enzymatic structure activity relationship chemoprevention of cancer regulatory science. Genetic toxicology including risk evaluation for human health validation studies on testing methods and subjects of guidelines for regulation of chemicals are also within its scope.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Genes and Environment

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
