I have worked on a paper that is about the influence of plant microRNA on the human.

I prepared a good database of planet microRNA then I did some bioinformatics analysis on them and finally I interpret the result in the biology aspect but I haven't any experimental validation. I have already tried for the EJON and the journal of nutrition and I have rejected in both of them. which journal has my paper a chance to be accepted?

Actually, I need a journal that they accept in silico work.

Thank you all.

Planet microRNA, what is that? I assume you mean plant microRNA?

Clearly short RNAseq processed by Galaxy. :D

It is a bit difficult to judge whether "some bioinformatics" are enough for any journal. This term really could mean anything between aligning a handful of reads to a reference and building/applying a dedicated pipeline for plant (I assume you mean plant and not planet) miRNA activity on the human genome.

You could submit to bioRXiV as a preprint and then see how that goes.

This smells like “I need to publish for the sake of publishing” rather than “I have some science that people really need to see”.

What were your findings?

then I did some bioinformatics analysis on them

That's not very specific. I tend to get angry when people say "some bioinformatics analysis".

How about a talk when someone presents the "bioinformatics" of the project, which are a handful of tables that someone pulled from a public web interface?

Then I expect a better description of their methods than "some bioinformatics analysis" :-)

The source of my anger is from project propositions which in depth describe their labwork, methods, options and steps and then write "and then we do bioinformatic analysis and get networks of proteins involved in the disease".
