Notability, Primary Sources[edit]

This article is notable, but at present is only a stub. Scientific journals that are peer-reviewed are high-quality primary sources (cf. WP:V#Reliable_sources). And in general, Wikipedia needs information about peer-reviewed scientific journals (see also List of scientific journals, List of medical journals, etc. and see search list+journal.

The question then becomes, is this a good quality journal. Here are some facts about this particular journal:

  • It is supported by advertising (see [1])
  • Searching PubMed for "genome biology" returns 2181 references (so it's cited frequently)
  • It has an impact factor of 6.59, meaning articles published here are cited by others. It should be noted that this isn't always definitive (as some people game the system).
  • They ask submitters disclosed conflicts of interest.[2]
  • All BioMed Central journals are peer-reviewed.[3]
  • This journal has a particular review policy.[4]

Therefore, failing any major objection, I'm removing the tags added here. --InsufficientData (talk) 18:33, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
