In selecting articles for publication, the editors gives preference to those of general significance that are well written, well organized, and intelligible to the multidisciplinary Biotech Express Magazine audience. Membership in Biotech Express is may be a factor in selection. Biotech Express Magazine aims to publish articles on top-quality work with important impact, and to introduce readers with diversified resources in important areas of Biosciences. Articles will usually take a broad view or provide an example shedding light on a broad area, and may summarize research that has been previously published in more technical publications.
Results of the review process are normally available within two months of submission. Especially long submissions or submissions received during the submissions or reviewing period of a major conference may require additional time.
Outcomes of the review process include acceptance, acceptance with revisions but without re-review, revise and resubmit, or rejection. Articles that are consistently rejected include those that are overly commercial in tone, poorly written or organized, too specialized or esoteric, too elementary, or too long or that cover material already dealt with in Biotech Express Magazine.
If authors are encouraged to revise and resubmit a submission, there is no guarantee that the resubmission will be reviewed by the same reviewers or that the revised submission will be accepted. Submissions with a recommendation to revise and resubmit may be resubmitted only one time.
Articles rejected twice will not be re-reviewed by the magazine. All scholarly submissions (articles) first receive a preliminary assessment to determine their suitability for the focus, target audience, and style of the magazine. Submissions judged potentially suitable are then given an in-depth anonymous peer review, typically by 2-4 experts in Biosciences. Reviewers judge submissions for timeliness of topics, significance, and technical quality. Extensive review comments are provided only when necessary to authors whose manuscripts are conditionally accepted for publication.
