4 Publication and peer-review process
Criteria for publication
All submissions must be subjected to CrossRef's plagiarism check by CrossCheck. Only those with no any similarity compared in the CrossCheck database can be proceeded for peer review. Plagarism check in this journal is solely for the purpose of submission’s language arts and does not imply any plagiarism or forging existed.
Scientists in the world are invited to be as peer reviewer in this journal. All submission will be automatically transferred online to the reviewers by Manuscript Handling System in the BioPublisher prior to CrossRef's plagiarism check by CrossCheck.
5 Online publication
There are much more advantages for online publishing, including:
** Peer review quickly and professionally
** Anti- Plagiarism by CrossCheck
** Publish on line immediately upon acceptance
** Deposit permanently and track easily
** Open Access under Creative Common licences
** Disseminate multilingual possible
6 Indexing and archiving
All articles published in Computational Molecular Biology will be deposited in CrossRef with the DOI (Digital Object Identifer) identity. For details please see Instructions for Submission.
7 Publication period
Computational Molecular Biology promises to offer much faster publication schedules. Normally it takes two or four weeks depending on the speed of peer review. Using the recommended manuscript preparation formats will largely speed up the paper procedures and shorten the periods. Research articles will be published electronically in provisional PDF immediately upon acceptance. A fully HTMLweb version and PDF download version will be available within four weeks after acceptance.
