New 'Metabarcoding and Metagenomics' journal
Please tell us what you think about establishing a new innovative open-access journal by Pensoft Publishers (
) to specifically target the needs of the metabarcoding and metagenomics community. Your feedback is highly valuable to us and will be actively used when developing the concept of the new journal.
Do you see any need for a dedicated 'Metabarcoding and Metagenomics' journal, or do you think this topic can be better developed as part of already established journals [e.g. Pensoft's Biodiversity Data Journal (
A specific 'Metabarcoding and Metagenomics' journal is a good idea
Better develop this topic within a currently active journal (e.g. Biodiversity Data Journal)
In your opinion, what should be the focal point and scope of this journal?
DNA barcoding and genomics in taxonomy, systematics and phylogeny
Environmental metabarcoding and metagenomics
Microbial metabarcoding and metagenomics
Applied areas (e.g., biomonitoring, quarantine, nature conservation)
Species delimitation and identification
Metabarcoding and community ecology
Do you like the proposed title "Metabarcoding and Metagenomics" or do you have a better name for the new journal ?

Concepts and methodology (monitoring schemata, sampling, experimental design, etc.)
DNA-based biomonitoring (implementation, large scale tests)
Barcoding and genomics data papers
Reference DNA database
Primer validations (given that underlying data is published)
Software descriptions and R packages related to metagenomics and metabarcoding
Metabarcoding applications (biomonitoring, quarantine, conservation)
How do you see the journal's policies regarding open access to data underlying research articles?
