We have been alerted to a change in the Genome Research author guidelines, which now read:
The journal only accepts papers that present original research that has not been published previously. Conference presentations or posting unrefereed manuscripts on not-for-profit community preprint servers will not be considered prior publication. Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference (including DOI), and a link to the published article on the Genome Research website upon publication. [emphasis added]
We look forward to discussing preprints targeted for Genome Research at Haldane’s Sieve.
