The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), the only nationally recognized US medical professional organization solely dedicated to improving health through the practice of medical genetics and genomics, and Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, have announced a new partnership to publish ACMG's official journal, Genetics in Medicine (GIM). The journal will also offer authors an open access option and will be hosted on Elsevier's leading online platform, ScienceDirect, beginning January 2022.
ACMG was founded in 1991 and currently has a membership of more than 2,300 clinical and laboratory geneticists, genetic counsellors, and other healthcare professionals. ACMG's decision to partner with Elsevier directly supports its mission to improve personal and public health through the clinical and laboratory practice of medical genetics; advocacy, education, and clinical research programs; and the safe and effective integration of genetics and genomics into all of medicine and healthcare.
Medical genetics is becoming increasingly important in the wider medical practice. GIM's eminent editorial board under the continued leadership of Editor-in-Chief Dr. Robert D. Steiner ensures that this high quality, peer-reviewed journal will continue to be an authoritative resource for the dissemination of medical genetic knowledge to providers both within and outside of the genetics community.
Elsevier is committed to the continuity of the journal's rigorous editorial process and accessibility of content, and further solidifying GIM's reputation for publishing papers based on the quality of the science and its substantial contributions to advancements in the field.Click here to read the original press release.
