About the Journal

Epigenetics as a word itself means that addition to Genetic sequence. It encompasses any process that alters the activity of gene without alteration in DNA sequence and these modifications can be later transformed into the daughter cells, however, some exceptions are there as some epigenetic changes could be reversed. The epigenetics process includes methylation, phosphorylation, acetylation, sumoylation, and ubiquitylation. The epigenetic mechanisms normally occur as natural and essential phenomena in the body of living organisms, these changes help in switching the genes on and off. However, if they occur imperfectly it may result in many adverse health conditions.

Gene expression refers to the frequency with which proteins are made from the instructions in genes. While genetic changes can change which protein is produced, epigenetic changes affect gene expression to "turn on" and "turn off" genes. Because environment and behavior, such as diet and exercise, can cause epigenetic changes, it is easy to see the connection between your genes and your behavior and environment.

The epigenetics mechanism has links to various diseases, example the epigenetic mechanisms are one of the top five cancer considerations, accounting for one-third to one-half of known genetic changes. It makes sense to counteract these changes through epigenetic treatments. These changes seem to be an ideal target because, unlike mutations in the DNA sequence, they are inherently reversible. The most popular of these treatments aim to alter DNA methylation or histone acetylation.

Fast Editorial Review Process

Epigenetics Research: Open Access is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.

Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.

The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.
