3. Aims and Scope

BRI provides a platform a modern forum of scientific communication for global researchers, without regard to gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religion, or socio-economic status.

Publishing data in scientific journals is the accepted means for dissemination of information in science. Publications are important to investigators as they reflect the extent and scope of their scholarly activities, as well as being an important component in their promotion and obtaining grant support. Publications are also the principal method for dissemination of information to other investigators in the field as well as the public at large. Therefore, we consider all publications as important communications. Frontiers in Bioscience journals strives to publish manuscripts, lectures, databases and other useful information and attempts will be made to post the manuscript online in a minimal amount of time after it has been accepted for publication.

Frontiers in Bioscience journals strive to assist science industries deliver the mission of their business to thousands of scientists and decision-makers around the globe. Data and information that are useful to investigators in any discipline of biology and medicine including biochemistry, microbiology, parasitology, virology, immunology, biotechnology, and bioinformatics will be published after a thorough peer review. Such manuscripts will include reviews and research articles in basic science and clinical science, as well as technical notes and protocols. Other scholarly materials that have not been traditionally published as peer reviewed articles will also be considered for publication. Examples include rare images, video and/or audio files, and assimilated data in the form of a database on any subject pertinent to medicine and biology.
