The Open Journal of Bioresources (OJB) is accepting submissions for publication in 2022.
OJB features peer-reviewed short papers helping researchers to locate and cite bioresources with high reuse potential. Making bioresources more openly discoverable has enormous benefits not only for the research community and the wider public, but for the producers of the bioresources as well. Both the resources and the OJB papers are citable and citations are tracked to provide authors with metrics on reuse and impact.
OJB's 2020 Scopus CiteScore is 1.1. The journal is at the 31% (32/46) percentile of Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology journals.
OJB is indexed by the following services: Scopus, Chronos, Center for Open Science, OpenAIRE, ExLibris, Journal TOCs, CNKI, sparrho, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), CrossRef, JISC KB+, SHERPA RoMEO, EBSCOHost, Cengage Learning and Google Scholar. In addition, all journals are available for harvesting via OAI-PMH.
OJB publishes as soon as articles are ready. There is no delay in research being released.

The Open Journal of Bioresources received its inaugaural Citescore of 1.1 from Scopus. The journal is at the 31% (32/46) percentile of Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology journals.
Citescore is only one of many metrics that can be used to assess the impact of a journal. Citescores for 2020 count citations received in 2017-2020 to articles published in 2017-2020, and divides this by the number of publications published during that period.

With an aim to making Open Journal of Bioresources financially sustainable, we have raised our Article Processing Charges (APCs) to reflect the costs of publishing the important articles you’ll find here. To establish trust with authors, institutions and funders, we provide a transparent breakdown of how the APC is calculated:
Ubiquity Press provides a lower-cost alternative for authors, funders and universities, and means that library and research budgets can go further. Our fees are fully transparent, and you can trust us that every penny goes towards providing a high quality, sustainable publishing service, and not towards sky-high publisher profits.
