Aims and Scope
BioMolecular Concepts is a peer-reviewed journal fostering the integration of different fields of biomolecular research. The journal aims to provide expert summaries from prominent researchers, and conclusive extensions of research data leading to new and original, testable hypotheses. Aspects of research that can promote related fields, and lead to novel insight into biological mechanisms or potential medical applications are of special interest. Researchers are encouraged to submit review articles, in particular conceptual overviews that cultivate novel ideas and scientific views across disciplines. Original research articles reporting new data of broad significance are also welcome.
BioMolecular Concepts publishes novel concepts derived from recent findings in forefront fields of biology including:
Review of manuscripts and speed of publication
Manuscripts (research papers, conceptional overviews and reviews) are independently reviewed by at least two peers selected by the Editors. Decisions are reached as quickly as possible. The Journal aspires to notify authors within four weeks from the submission date. Papers are promptly published online ahead-of-print as soon as they have been finally processed.
- Type of Publication:
Scientists in the field of biology, including cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, epigenetics, neurosciences, and developmental biology.
Submission of Manuscripts
The editors of BioMolecular Concepts would like to invite submissions for this new journal which aims to publish novel concepts derived from recent findings in forefront fields of biology including cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, epigenetics, neurosciences, developmental biology, and biomolecular medicine. The major purpose of the journal is to provide expert summaries from prominent researchers in these fields, and conclusive extensions of research data leading to new and original, testable hypotheses. Aspects of research that can promote related fields, and lead to novel insight into biological mechanisms or potential medical applications are of special interest. Researchers are encouraged to submit review articles, in particular conceptual overviews that foster novel ideas and scientific views across disciplines. Original research articles reporting new data of broad significance in any of the above mentioned subject area are also welcome.
For more information about the journal and its publication scope, the reader is kindly invited to refer to the Editor's Note, BioMol Concepts 1 (2010), p. 1.

Papers must be submitted online at the journal’s manuscript submission site http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/biomolcon.
Author wishes to include own article in an institutional repository or place own article on a departmental/personal website
The author's institute can offer access to the authors’ final, accepted manuscript version of an article from its repository website. Likewise, authors are allowed to post their final, accepted manuscript version on their own personal or laboratory website. In both cases an embargo period of 12 months after online publication in the journal applies. Unless expressly permitted, authors may not post the publisher's version on their own website. However, it is possible to place a link to the published article PDF for purchase.
This permission is restricted to non-commercial institutions only; for the conditions regarding article placement on corporate websites, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inclusion of articles in a general repository
General repositories may include the abstract of the article in the repository and place a link to the publisher's version of the article for purchase.
NIH-funded authors: WdG acknowledges that the author of an NIH-funded article retains the right to provide a copy of the final, accepted manuscript document to NIH for archiving in PubMed Central 12 months after online publication in the journal. Note that only the accepted author’s version of the manuscript, not the PDF file of the published article, may be used for NIH archiving.
Institutional repository wishes to include articles which do not exist in electronic format
WdG allows institutional repositories to include a scanned version of their authors' journal articles as published in printed form. We request a link be placed to the journal’s homepage (www.degruyter.com/journals/biomolcon).
Author wishes to place a link to the abstract of an article
Authors may place as many links to the abstract as desired.
Author wishes to send electronic offprints (PDFs) to colleagues
Authors will receive an offprint of the publisher’s article version as PDF-document. Authors may send up to 30 copies of the PDF document as electronic offprint to colleagues. Any other form of distribution of the electronic offprint file requires written permission from the publisher.
