Developments at the Society Journal, RNA

The Society journal, RNA, continues to thrive. Now in its 24th year, RNA continues to publish high quality articles, as well as timely communications, reviews, and opinion pieces, with an impact factor in the top 20% of journals in this class.  RNA continues to be a convenient place to publish, with no page limits, BioRxiv compatibility, rapid review, and rapid on line publication after final acceptance.  RNA Society members also continue to enjoy other benefits of publication in RNA, including a low cost flat rate publication fee of $1000 for manuscripts under 12 pages, and unlimited free color figures.  Profits from the journal go directly to the RNA Society, helping to support numerous functions including travel awards.
