GigaScience Press is BGI's Open Access Publishing division, which publishes journal articles and accompanying datasets and software. This work is carried out with International publishers and infrastructure providers, including BioMed Central, Oxford University Press, River Valley Technologies, ORCID, CrossRef, CLOCKSS, and DataCite. Journals so far include GigaScience, an online open access, open data, open peer-review journal co-published with OUP. And GigaByte, which is focused on publishing short descriptive reports that provide updates or ongoing adjustments in Big Data Research. Both journals focus on ‘big data’ research from the life and biomedical sciences, including the growing range of work that uses difficult-to-access large-scale data, such as imaging, neuroscience, ecology, cohort, systems biology, and other new types of sharable data. We are unique in the publishing industry as we publish ALL research objects (data, software tools, and workflows) and do this within the context of a variety of article types, including Research, Data Notes, Technical Notes, Reviews and Commentaries. Our goal is to revolutionize publishing by improving research reproducibility and data dissemination, organization, understanding, and re-use.
