Scope/Description:

Biology Open (BiO) is an online author-pays Open Access journal that publishes peer-reviewed original research in all areas of the biological and biomedical sciences. It is a requirement for consideration at BiO that the work addresses a clearly stated, non-trivial, biological hypothesis. Editors will also consider Methods & Techniques papers, papers on computational analysis, replication studies, and rigorous reports presenting negative results. It is published by The Company of Biologists, a not-for-profit publishing organisation dedicated to supporting and inspiring the biological community. BiO does not consider articles in pure physics, chemistry, engineering, earth sciences, clinical studies, surgical procedures, public health, and homeopathy, complementary or alternative medicine. Since its launch in 2011, BiO has published more than 1100 peer-reviewed papers that have been accepted on the basis that they are technically sound and their conclusions are supported by the data shown – rather than on the perceived importance of the findings. The scope of BiO reflects The Company of Biologists' acknowledged expertise in cell, developmental, experimental and translational biology, and reaches further to support research communities across all aspects of the biological and biomedical sciences. Authors are encouraged to submit their work directly to BiO for consideration by an international board of research-active academic Editors led by Editor-in-Chief Steven Kelly, and Deputy Editors Anna-Katerina Hadjantonakis and Jack Hayes.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?


III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

H-Index

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
