Non-Coding RNA — Open Access Journal

Non-Coding RNA (ISSN 2311-553X) is an international peer-reviewed open access journal on non-coding RNA research dealing with elucidating the structure, function and biology of regulatory non-coding RNAs. Non-Coding RNA is published quarterly online by MDPI. Cardiolinc is affiliated with Non-Coding RNA.
  • Open Access: free for readers, free publication for well-prepared manuscripts submitted in 2018.
  • High visibility: Indexed in BIOSIS Previews (Web of Science) and Scopus. Citations available in PubMed, full-text archived in PubMed Central.
