About Genomics, Society and Policy

Genomics, Society and Policy is an initiative of the ESRC Centre for Economic and Social Aspects of Genomics (CESAGen), the ESRC Genomics Network and the Dutch Centre for Society and Genomics.

As a peer reviewed online journal GSP provides an outlet for interdisciplinary research on the social, ethical and legal aspects of genomics and related emergent technologies such as nanotechnology and stem cell research. GSP welcomes submissions from sociological, philosophical, anthropological, legal, historical and other perspectives. We welcome submissions concerned with human medical issues, environmental impacts, human/animal relations and animal ethics. The journal will from time to time have themed special issues.

We are pleased to say that Genomics, Society and Policy is free, open access and will publish three times a year. The online format provides for quicker processing of time sensitive research and a greater degree of interaction with a rapid response section.
