1 About International Journal of Molecular Evolution and Biodiversity

International Journal of Molecular Evolution and Biodiversity is an open access, peer reviewed journal published online by BioPublisher. The journal publishes all the latest and outstanding research articles, letters and reviews in all areas of molecular evolution and biodiversity, topics addressed including experimental and theoretical work of molecular evolution; the evolution of informational macromolecules and their relation to more complex levels of biological organization; investigations of molecular evolutionary patterns and processes, tests of evolutionary hypotheses that use molecular data, and studies; on all matters concerning the integrity and wellness of ecosystems and the diversity of species; as well as the study of species interactions and the role of species in structuring marine ecosystem functioning.


2 Aims and Scope

International Journal of Molecular Evolution and Biodiversity is committed to publishing and disseminating all the latest and outstanding research articles, letters and reviews in all areas of molecular evolution and biodiversity.
 
All papers chosen for publications should be creative reviews, innovative research work, short communications, and case reports on all aspects of molecular evolution and biodiversity, including experimental and theoretical work of molecular evolution; the evolution of informational macromolecules and their relation to more complex levels of biological organization; investigations of molecular evolutionary patterns and processes, tests of evolutionary hypotheses that use molecular data, and studies; on all matters concerning the integrity and wellness of ecosystems and the diversity of species; as well as the study of species interactions and the role of species in structuring marine ecosystem functioning. The primary criterion for publication is new insights that are not only of broad interest to scientists, science writers, naturalists, and teachers/students/researchers engaged in molecular evolution and biodiversity, but are also appropriate for R & D personnel as well as readers interested in evolution and biodiversity.


3 Content overview

International Journal of Molecular Evolution and Biodiversity considers the following types of articles:

** Research article: Original reports of data from original researches, whose conclusions represent a substantial advance in understanding of an important problem and have immediate, far-reaching implications.

** Letters: brief reports of data from original research focused on an outstanding finding whose importance means that it will be of interest to scientists in other fields.

** Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method.
