The journal GENETICS, published by the Genetics Society of America, publishes high quality, original research presenting novel findings on a range of topics bearing on inheritance. These topics include population and evolutionary genetics, complex traits, developmental and behavioral genetics, cellular genetics, gene expression, genome integrity and transmission, genome and systems biology, and methods, technology, and resources.

The journal also publishes Review, Commentary (current issues or interest to geneticists), and Perspective (historical) articles, as well as articles focused on the teaching of genetics. With a five-year impact factor of 4.311 and a cited half life of >10, GENETICS ranks in the top 9.7% by the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), and provides access to solid, foundational research and to publish articles whose findings will have a significant advance on the field. GENETICS is the premier journal in the field of genetics.


GENETICS, founded in 1916 and the first American journal in the field, has long been a premier genetics journal. Its readership ranges from undergraduate students to professors emeriti. The majority of readers are doctoral-level researchers and educators who focus on the genetics of model organisms.

These researchers study organisms that are models for understanding human biology, and out of a direct interest in the biology of the organisms themselves. GENETICS includes reports on research into the molecular biology, cell biology, organismal biology, population genetics, evolutionary biology, and genome science of life.

The journal has a broad reach to individuals all over the world investigating genetic mechanisms in organisms ranging from yeast to man to mice, as well as those in biotechnology and biomedical research, biochemistry, cell biology, evolutionary and population genetics, medical genetics, bioinformatics, and public health research. Starting with Volume 1, Issue 1, published in January 1916, the full text of every GENETICS article ever published is online. This rich repository is a valuable storehouse of genetics knowledge.
