Alcoholism and Drug Addiction

  • ISSN: 0867-4361
A quarterly journal aimed at scientists engaged in studies in psychoactive substances, at clinicians and all those interested in problems connected with alcohol and drug addiction. The journal is interdisciplinary in its character - the papers accepted for publication address problems associated with alcohol and other psychoactive substances and take the form of studies in basic, clinical, epidemiological and social research topics. The issues discussed in the journal include alcohol and drug policy, social and cultural determinants in substance use, social history of alcohol and drug use, behavioural addictions, the influence of psychoactive substances on mechanisms in the brain and its neuroplasticity, biological factors associated with alcohol and psychoactive substance abuse in youth and adults, impact of addictions on health, nervous system, liver, life expectancy, addiction therapy schemes, pharmacological strategies. The goal of the journal is to share the results of Polish and international research work and studies, expand and integrate research groups, and also to build bridges between science and (clinical) practice. The Editorial Board accepts for publication original research papers, review articles, case studies and monographs, conference papers, conference reviews, book reviews, letters and announcements. All the research articles, reviews, case studies and monographs are peer reviewed. Authors and reviewers remain anonymous to each other. We accept articles in Polish and English. Alcoholism and Drug Addiction is an official journal of the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw in Warsaw. The paper version of the journal is distributed by The State Agency for the Prevention of Alcohol Related Problems, which also provides co-financing.

Anaerobe

  • ISSN: 1075-9964
  • 5 Year impact factor: 2.9
  • Impact factor: 2.3
The Official Journal of the Anaerobe Society of the Americas and the Japanese Association for Anaerobic Infection Research Anaerobe is essential reading for those who wish to remain at the forefront of discoveries relating to life processes of strictly anaerobes. The journal is multi-disciplinary, and provides a unique forum for those investigating strictly anaerobic organisms that cause infections in humans and animals, as well as anaerobes that play roles in microbiomes or environmental processes. Anaerobe will consider manuscripts on anaerobic bacteria, archaea, fungi, protists as well as bacteriophages of anaerobes. Relevant topics fall into the broad categories of: Anaerobes in human and animal diseases Anaerobes in the microbiome Anaerobes in the environment Anaerobes in industrial processes (including biofuels and waste management) Microbial ecology of anaerobes Clinical microbiology involving anaerobes Pathogenesis of anaerobic organisms (including their toxins) Molecular biology and genetics of anaerobes Taxonomy of anaerobes Physiology of anaerobes Papers describing innovative methodologies, technologies and applications to investigate anaerobic microorganisms are also of interest. Manuscripts describing novel species of obligate anaerobes will be reviewed, if the description of the new species also includes information showing novel phenotypic characteristics, pathogenicity and/or unique metabolic activity within the microbiome from which it was isolated. Manuscripts describing novel anaerobic species that are only different from other related members of a genus based on genotype will not be reviewed. Manuscript types accepted (see Guide for Authors for more information): Original research articlesOriginal research reports on one or more of the above listed categories. Up to 4000 words, not including a structured abstract, figures, tables and references. Short CommunicationsPresentation of brief observations that do not warrant a full-length publication. Up to 1500 words not including abstract, figures, tables and references. Short communications should report complete datasets and not preliminary findings. Reviews and minireviewsReviews are typically 7,000 words in length including relevant tables and/or figures. Mini-reviews are typically restricted to 2,500 words in length. *New from March 1st 2023: Anaerobe no longer accepts unsolicited reviews and standalone mini-reviews. Proposals for reviews and mini-reviews within the topics mentioned above are welcome for consideration by the journal. Please provide a proposed title and detailed outline of the topic to be covered to an editor-in-chief by email. Case reportsPresentation of a short report on a significant clinical observation, preceded by a minireview (up to 2500 words) of the literature describing the background of similar cases/infections, what is known about the associated microbe, and other clinically relevant information. *New from March 2023: Case Reports will only be considered in this new format. Commentaries Occasionally, Anaerobe will consider publication of commentaries on important new work in the field. Such commentaries will be invited by the editors-in-chief. Suggestions for commentaries may be emailed to an Editor-in-Chief. Unsolicited commentaries will not be considered. Please note: 1. Anaerobe does not accept manuscripts on descriptive, sequence-based surveys of microbiomes, even if the environments of the sampled ecosystems select for anaerobic species. However, when studies such as these are accompanied by direct, mechanistic assays of strictly anaerobic components, they will be considered for publication. 2. Anaerobe will not consider manuscripts that deal only with descriptive accounts of the beneficial effects of potentially novel probiotic strains, unless such strains belong to strictly anaerobic species that have previously not been associated with probiotic features. Anaerobe will continue to consider manuscripts for publication that address determinations of the specific mechanism(s) of action of anaerobic probiotic strains.

Analytical Biochemistry

  • ISSN: 0003-2697
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.2
  • Impact factor: 2.9
Methods in the Biological Sciences The journal's title Analytical Biochemistry: Methods in the Biological Sciences declares its broad scope: methods for the basic biological sciences that include biochemistry, molecular genetics, cell biology, proteomics, immunology, bioinformatics and wherever the frontiers of research take the field. The emphasis is on methods from the strictly analytical to the more preparative that would include novel approaches to protein purification as well as improvements in cell and organ culture. The actual techniques are equally inclusive ranging from aptamers to zymology. The journal has been particularly active in: Analytical techniques for biological molecules Aptamer selection and utilization Biosensors Chromatography Cloning, sequencing and mutagenesis Electrochemical methods Electrophoresis Enzyme characterization methods Immunological approaches Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (in vivo) Mass spectrometry of proteins and nucleic acids Metabolomics Nano level techniques Optical spectroscopy in all its forms The journal is reluctant to include most drug and strictly clinical studies as there are more suitable publication platforms for these types of papers. Apart from full-length original research papers, the journal also welcomes Review papers, and Notes and Tips - featuring methods that can be summarized in a shorter format article, including helpful "kitchen tricks".
