    It is a tradition in our Department of Bioinformatics and Telemedicine to organize conferences in the field of Computer Simulation of Biological Systems. These conferences have been organized since 1975 in five years cycle.
    The closing panel during the conference organized in 2005 opened the discussion concerning difficulties in publishing papers representing interdisciplinary issues. Particularly, linking the computer science activities in the medical field appeared to be difficult due to expectations of journals. The medical journals expected pure medical problems to be discussed. The computer science journals expected articles on new numerical solutions. Therefore, the papers presenting new computer-based techniques potentially applicable in both, scientific medicine as well as practical medicine, were postponed.
    The students group participating in the conference in 2005 expressed the inspired the foundation of a journal which is specially oriented on the interdisciplinary activity linking medicine (and generally life science) with computer-based techniques.
    As the result of this discussion the journal Bio-Algorithms and Med-Systems was launched and the first issue was published. The participants of the conference were the authors of the first issue, and the papers were published in Polish. The discussion about the cover and layout begun. The name of journal combines “Bio-Algorithms” to cover the field of molecular, cellular, tissue, organs, whole body simulations, and “Med-Systems” to cover all practical medical fields, including image processing, hospital system development, e-learning in medicine, etc. The second issue was published in English, thus opening the journal to the international community.
    Bio-Algorithms and Med-Systems was registered officially; the owner of the title is the Jagiellonian University – Medical College. The first volumes were published bi-annually.
    Right from the beginning we also offered a platform to the small business because the linking of scientific solutions with small companies was of high importance at that time.
    Two issues of the Journal are of high importance to us. One issue is entirely devoted to grid systems as platform for integrated activities in medicine, and international project with contributors from Italy, Romania, France and China. The second issue focused on E-learning techniques in medicine, a project supported by a European grant and coordinated by British scientists.
    We were very happy to be invited by De Gruyter to publish the Journal in cooperation. The collaboration with De Gruyter publisher started in 2012.
    In our editorial activity we have been significantly supported by Cyfronet - Academic Computer Center AGH Krakow.
    Since 2015 Bio-Algorithms and Med-Systems has been indexed by DBLP (computer science bibliography) data base, which means that citations are counted.
