International Journal of Biological Sciences
International Journal of Biological Sciences is a new peer-reviewed journal publishing scientific papers of significance in all areas of biological sciences, including cell biology, developmental biology, structural biology, microbiology, molecular biology & genetics, biochemistry, biotechnology, ecology, and bioinformatics. Articles of cross-disciplined research between biology and mathematics, physics, information science, material science and others are also welcomed.
The Journal aims at rapid publication of high quality research results while maintaining rigorous peer review process, with the goal to build a leading international journal in the next few years. The Journal is committed to open access its online version to maximize the distribution of articles. Full texts of all articles will be made available in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's biomedical journal information archive. A print version of the Journal is also scheduled to publish for subscription by worldwide research libraries.
All submissions must use the Journal's online submission system to facilitate rapid review and turnaround time. Only PDF or Word files can be accepted. The whole manuscript must be submitted as a single PDF or Word file. Images, tables and supplementary data should be embedded in the PDF or Word of the manuscript in where they are used.
