  1. Science Reviews publishes 2 types of articles.

    Reviews. The review articles present the recent progress in author’s area of expertise. Review articles should give a concise and unbiased picture of recent developments and publications.

    Research articles. Scientific articles present original theoretical and/or experimental results obtained by the authors. These theoretical and/or experimental results must be scientifically sound and provide a significant amount of new information

  2. Manuscripts submitted to Science Reviews must not exceed 10,000 words. We employ this requirement to keep the size of the printed journal “Science Reviews – Biology” manageable. This journal is printed in Canada and sent to authors free of charge by regular mail.

  3. The text of submitted manuscripts must be concise, comprehensive and written in English. For experimental articles, disclosure of all details of the experiment is mandatory so that the experimental results can be reproduced.

Although the formatting of manuscripts is flexible, all manuscripts should contain: Author Information, Affiliation, Contact Information, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Main Body of the article, Conclusions, List of References and Conflict of Interest statement. The Discussion section is optional for the review articles and mandatory for the research articles.

Editorial and Peer-Review Process

All submitted manuscripts are reviewed by the managing editor to determine whether they are properly prepared and comply with the ethical policy of the journal. Manuscripts that do not comply with the journal's ethical policies or standards are rejected prior to peer review.

After the manuscript has passed the initial review, it is submitted to reviewers for peer review. We use double-blind peer review, meaning the reviewers do not know the names of the authors. The reviewer's comments are confidential and are disclosed only with the express consent of the reviewer.

Reviewers also provide editors with a score that indicates the value of the article. After the completion of the next journal issue this score will be used to identify an outstanding article for which APC amount will be refunded and the author will be paid an $300 honorarium.

Editorial decision and revision

Upon completion of the review process, the author will be notified of the journal's decision. The follwing outcomes are possible.

  • Artcile is accepted as is.
  • Artcile is accepted with minor revisions.
  • Major revisions and re-review is necessary.
