Special issues (tentative)

A list of papers with very high quality will be selected to be extended and submitted in different special issues. We have currently contacted these journals:

Statistical Methods in Medical Research

"Statistical Methods in Medical Research is a highly ranked, peer reviewed scholarly journal and is the leading vehicle for articles in all the main areas of medical statistics and therefore an essential reference for all medical statisticians. It is particularly useful for medical researchers dealing with data and provides a key resource for medical and statistical libraries, as well as pharmaceutical companies".

This unique journal is devoted solely to statistics and medicine and aims to keep professionals abreast of the many powerful statistical methods now available to the medical profession. As new methods are constantly adopted by statisticians working both inside and outside the medical environment, this review journal aims to satisfy the increasing demand for accurate and up-to-the-minute information.

PLOS Computational Biology

PLOS Computational Biology features works of exceptional significance that further our understanding of living systems at all scales—from molecules and cells, to patient populations and ecosystems—through the application of computational methods. Readers include life and computational scientists, who can take the important findings presented here to the next level of discovery.

Research articles must be declared as belonging to a relevant section. More information about the sections can be found in the submission guidelines.

Research articles should model aspects of biological systems, demonstrate both methodological and scientific novelty, and provide profound new biological insights. Research articles with limited novelty may be more appropriate for PLOS ONE.

Generally, reliability and significance of biological discovery through computation should be validated and enriched by experimental studies. Inclusion of experimental validation is not required for publication, but should be referenced where possible. Inclusion of experimental validation of a modest biological discovery through computation does not render a manuscript suitable for PLOS Computational Biology.

BMC Bioinformatics

BMC Bioinformatics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the development, testing and novel application of computational and statistical methods for the modeling and analysis of all kinds of biological data, as well as other areas of computational biology.
