Journal of Biological Chemistry Changes Approach to Manuscript Reviews and Eliminates Submission Fees

r "mechanistic insight" into any molecular process, which is to say it accepted papers that not only reported that a molecular process occurred but how or why it occurred.

Now, JBC editors are broadening their definition of "mechanism," in light of path-breaking research being done in new, still-developing fields that, while molecular in the level of analysis, has not yet reached the stage at which it provides the level of detailed mechanistic information expected in more established research areas.

"The fields have evolved so much that you can't always understand mechanistic details fully at the outset," explained JBC Deputy Editor Robert D. Simoni. "We recognize that you cannot in a single paper solve a problem entirely. But, if you develop novel insights into the molecular nature of biological processes that are clear, interesting and important -- and that open the door for answering the next generation of questions -- your paper belongs in the JBC."

In the January issue of ASBMB Today, the member magazine of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, which publishes the JBC and two other journals, Simoni wrote that "a great number of exciting molecular and cellular biology studies are being carried out in neuroscience, developmental biology, cell biology, medical science, biophysics, immunology, microbiology, physiology, etc. We wish to emphasize that … much of the research in these areas would be very welcome in the JBC."

The "modest course adjustment," he said, also will affect how the journal categorizes manuscripts.

The journal's table of contents will reflect all areas of biology that can be studied at a molecular level. In addition, articles may appear under more than one category, which Simoni said will make finding relevant articles easier for readers and will increase authors' visibility.
