Notability, Primary Sources
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 )
- 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.
- All BioMed Central journals are peer-reviewed.
- This journal has a particular review policy.
