The growth in ecoinformatics research has given rise to a dedicated scientific journal: Ecological InformaticsAdditional informatics journals include:
- International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications (IJBRA)
- Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (JBCB)
- Online Journal of Bioinformatics (OJB)
