New Elite Chinese STEM Journal, Genes & Diseases, on ScienceOpen

New Open Access Journal Collection: Genes & Diseases

We are proud to introduce the newest Journal Collection on the platform: an elite STEM journal from China, Genes & Diseases. This journal was selected in 2019 as a top journal to join China’s STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan.

China’s Journal Excellence Action Plan

In 2019, the China STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan was jointly implemented by the China Association for Science and Technology, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the General Administration of Press and Publication, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. This initiative was started to improve the quality of top scientific journals in China to bring them to world standards. It’s a huge national project of high importance, consisting of seven sub-projects, including leading journals, key journals, echelon journals, high starting point journals, clustering pilots, international digital publishing service platforms, and high-level journal personnel. 285 journals were selected to receive funding from the 2019 China STEM Journal Excellence Action Plan. Genes & Diseases was selected as one of these journals in the ‘high starting point journals’ category. All the selected journals are considered highly influential in their respective fields. This national project is of the highest level and has huge support in China. Thus, we are thrilled to have Genes & Diseases join the platform in a featured Collection.
