‘Non-coding RNA’ thematic series – call for submissions


Epigenetics & Chromatin is inviting submissions for a thematic series on non-coding RNA, edited by Frank Grosveld (Erasmus University Medical Center, Netherlands) and Steven Henikoff (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, USA).

This article collection focuses on understanding the mechanisms of non-coding RNA, describing insights into the biogenesis and activity of non-coding RNAs, their interaction with chromatin, and novel methods for analysis and manipulation of RNA-mediated regulation.

The thematic series is open for the submission of Research articles on all aspects of non-coding RNA, including novel findings related to long-, short- and micro- RNAs. Articles already published in the series include an insight into the silencing mechanism by the long non-coding RNA XIST that triggers X-inactivation, by Carolyn Brown (University of British Columbia, Canada) and colleagues, and also a review by Jerry Workman (Stowers Institute for Medical Research, USA) and colleagues that focuses on the mechanisms regulating non-coding transcription.

Epigenetics & Chromatin (Impact Factor 4.19) is a peer-reviewed, open access, online journal, which publishes articles that provide highly novel insights into epigenetic inheritance and chromatin-based interactions. The Editors-in-Chief Frank Grosveld and Steven Henikoff provide quick and efficient decision-making, with an average time to first decision of 28 days.

To submit your manuscript, please use our online submission system and indicate in your covering letter that you would like it to be considered for the non-coding RNA series, or alternatively, send a pre-submission enquiry to editorial@epigeneticsandchromatin.com.
