Contributions may be in the form of original research papers, review articles, short communications, opinion articles, or letters to the Editors. Only manuscripts of high scientific significance and innovation will be considered for publication. Manuscripts of minimal international relevance, case reports, and control strategies at very early inconclusive laboratory stages of development will not be considered for publication. Important Guidelines for Acceptance Editors and the Editorial Board of Acta Tropica provide the following guidelines to help authors prepare manuscripts of high quality that can be considered for publication. Maximize your chances of acceptance by making sure your manuscript: Matches the scientific scope of the journal, Presents results that significantly advance science including innovative new approaches, Meets quality standards of presentation and literature citation, Demonstrates potential health or biomedical impact. The above points are critical for publication of original papers. Be aware Editors carefully evaluate initial manuscript submissions and only those meeting the above criteria will be forwarded to review.

International Journal for Parasitology

  • ISSN: 0020-7519
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.8
  • Impact factor: 4
Sponsored by the Australian Society for Parasitology The International Journal for Parasitology publishes the results of original research in all aspects of basic and applied parasitology, including all the fields covered by its Specialist Editors, and ranging from parasites and host-parasite relationships of intrinsic biological interest to those of social and economic importance in human and veterinary medicine and agriculture. Original research includes the development of novel and innovative concepts and ideas, as well as experimental and observational science that raises new hypotheses.We do not publish new genome sequences and assemblies alone without new and significant insight into the biology of the parasite, the parasite-host relationship or mechanisms of pathogenesis. Because of its breadth of discipline coverage, the aims and significance of all contributions should be made clear to readers who are not expert in the particular subject of papers. In applied parasitology, it will tend to favour contributions of broader significance to the subject rather than narrow, highly specialised applications. The principal form of publication is the full length paper which contains substantial results from a major program of research. The Journal also provides a medium for the publication of shorter, but complete, papers reporting highly significant original findings, as Succinctus articles. It also publishes Thematic Issues incorporating papers on a topical theme and commissions papers with emphasis on shorter, focussed Reviews of topical issues and strategically important subjects. The Journal encourages critical comment and debate on matters of current controversy in parasitology via "Current Opinions". Benefits to authors We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.

Journal of Immunological Methods

  • ISSN: 0022-1759
  • 5 Year impact factor: 2.3
  • Impact factor: 2.2
The Journal of Immunological Methods is devoted to covering techniques for: (1) Quantitating and detecting antibodies and/or antigens. (2) Purifying immunoglobulins, lymphokines and other molecules of the immune system. (3) Isolating antigens and other substances important in immunological processes. (4) Labelling antigens and antibodies. (5) Localizing antigens and/or antibodies in tissues and cells. (6) Detecting, and fractionating immunocompetent cells. (7) Assaying for cellular immunity. (8) Documenting cell-cell interactions. (9) Initiating immunity and unresponsiveness. (10) Transplanting tissues. (11) Studying items closely related to immunity such as complement, reticuloendothelial system and others. (12) Molecular techniques for studying immune cells and their receptors. (13) Imaging of the immune system. (14) Methods for production or their fragments in eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. (15) Computational methods including statistical and mathematical methods and computational models for analysis, visualization, and interpretation of results. Submitted full length manuscripts should describe new methods of broad applicability to immunology and not simply the application of an established method - although papers describing such applications may be considered for publication as a short Technical Note. Review articles will also be published by the Journal of Immunological Methods, but these manuscripts are by invitation only.

International Journal of Biological Macromolecules

  • ISSN: 0141-8130
  • 5 Year impact factor: 7.8
  • Impact factor: 8.2
Structure, Function and Interactions International Journal of Biological Macromolecules is an established international journal of research into chemical and biological aspects of all natural macromolecules.It presents the latest findings of studies on the molecular structure and properties of proteins, macromolecular carbohydrates, glycoproteins, proteoglycans, lignins, biological poly-acids, and nucleic acids. These findings must be new and novel rather than a repeat of earlier or analogous published work. The scope includes biological activities and interactions, molecular associations, chemical and biological modifications, and functional properties. Papers on related model systems, structural conformational studies, theoretical developments and new analytical techniques are also welcome. All papers are required to focus primarily on at least one named biological macromolecule. This naming should appear in the title, the abstract and the text of the paper. Examples of papers which are not appropriate for International Journal of Biological Macromolecules include: papers where the biological macromolecule has not been characterized by modern analytical techniques (including molecular weight) rather than historical methods. e.g. colorimetric assays. papers which focus on biological, physiological and pharmacological aspects of non-macromolecules attached to, or mixed with, biological macromolecules. papers on the materials science of biocomposites where there is no mention of any specific biological macromolecule. papers where the structure or role of the biological macromolecule is not the major proportion of the study. routine studies of extraction of macromolecules without purification and characterization of the extracted molecule. applications of macromolecules where the structure of the macromolecule is completely unknown. papers where the molecular weight of the biological molecule is less than five thousand. paper which are majorly about clinical studies and animal trials, where a biological macromolecule is not the biologically active agent, and/or the biological macromolecule is not the major focus of the study.
