Aims & scope
Biological Procedures Online is an open access, peer-reviewed journal which publishes articles that improve access to techniques and methods in the medical and biological sciences.
We are also interested in short but important research discoveries, such as new animal disease models.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Reports of new research techniques and applications of existing techniques
- Technical analyses of research techniques and published reports
- Validity analyses of research methods and approaches to judging the validity of research reports
- Application of common research methods
- Reviews of existing techniques
- Novel/important product information
Biological Procedures Online places emphasis on multidisciplinary approaches that integrate methodologies from medicine, biology, chemistry, imaging, engineering, bioinformatics, computer science, and systems analysis.
The journal welcomes manuscripts from innovators who have overcome technical challenges or developed new methods.
Biological Procedures Online has been publishing for over 12 years and has a 5-Year Impact Factor of 2.0.
Rolling Thematic Series
Multimorbidity and Equity in Health - Call for Papers
International Biological Procedures Online announces the launch of a series looking at Multimorbidity and Equity in Health. Multimorbidity, the co-occurrence of health conditions in individuals and populations, is a phenomenon with high burden and high prevalence in persons and groups of disadvantaged circumstances, such as low socioeconomic status, immigrants, and ethnic/cultural minorities.
This special issue accepts papers on patterns and trends of multimorbidity inequity, variations in multimorbidity burden by social characteristics, and on the impact of multimorbidity inequity on health care resource use and outcomes.
We encourage submissions to this ongoing rolling series, please indicate in the cover letter the manuscript is submitted to the Multimorbidity and Equity in Health.
A 20% reduced publication rate is offered to papers accepted for the special issue.
For any further information please contact the journal’s editorial team: email@example.com
