Annals of Human Genetics

The Annals of Human Genetics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1925 as the Annals of Eugenics by Karl Pearson, who was also the founder of Biometrika in 1901. Annals of Eugenics was changed to its current moniker in 1954 to reflect the changing views on the role of eugenics in society. It is published by Wiley-Blackwell in association with the University College, London. As of May 2012, its editor-in-chief is Andres Ruiz-Linares.

The Institute for Scientific Information said this was one of the “262 journals published between 1900-1944 … providing the most relevant significant and useful information of that era to today’s researcher.” It appears among the over 14,000 scientific journals listed by the Institute for Scientific Information, so it meets the standards for listing of that organization.

This journal covers all aspects of human genetics. The principal aim of this journal is to increase understanding of the biology of human variation, both in disease and in health. The major topics of the journal include: Human genome variation, Human population genetics, Statistical genetics, Genetics of common multifactorial diseases and other complex traits and QTLs, and Mendelian disorders and their molecular pathology.
