Biological Procedures Online, an open access journal focusing on improving access to techniques and methods in the medical and biological sciences, has today published its first articles with BioMed Central.
“We are excited to inform all previous and future contributors, as well as our readers, that Biological Procedures Online has been transferred to the open access publisher BioMed Central, a powerhouse for the timely publishing of articles in online journals”, says Shulin Li, Editor-in-Chief, in his inaugural Editorial.
Biological Procedures Online publishes articles that feature step-by-step protocols that allow researchers to implement methods in "cookbook" fashion at the bench top. The journal is interested in work from innovators in the field of biology who have either successfully overcome technical challenges with existing methods, or developed new methods entirely.
The first articles published with BioMed Central include research from Jacques De Grève and colleagues on the influence of primer position on RNA interference assays, and Nathan O’Callaghan and Michael Fenech describe a quantitative PCR method for measuring absolute telomere length.
Biological Procedures Online has been publishing for over 12 years; to access articles published prior to 2009, please see SpringerLink. For further information about Biological Procedures Online and to submit a manuscript, please visit the journal’s homepage or view the instructions for authors.
