GigaScience is an online open access, open data, open peer-review journal published by Oxford University Press and BGI. The journal offers ‘big data’ research from the life and biomedical sciences, and on top of 'Omics research includes the growing range of work that uses difficult-to-access large-scale data, such as imaging, neuroscience, ecology, systems biology, and other new types of shareable data. GigaScience is unique in the publishing industry as it publishes all research objects (data, software tools, source code, workflows, containers and other elements related to the work underpinning the findings in the article). Promoting Open Science, all published software needs to be under an OSI-license, all supporting data must be available and open, and all peer review is carried out transparently. Presenting workflows via our GigaGalaxy.net server, novel work presented at the meeting utilising Galaxy is eligible to a 15% APC if it is submitted to our Galaxy series.
