Author Guidelines

Manuscripts submitted for publication as articles should contain original research not published or submitted for publication elsewhere (the journal makes use of tunitin to screen all submissions). In order to maintain the interdisciplinary nature of the journal the exposition should be accessible to researchers from disciplines other than  the authors' own. Where there is a need, technical details (technically involved mathematical proofs, technical descriptions of conducting experiments, data-sets, etc.) should be presented as an appendix or in a separate publication in a specialized journal. It is expected that whenever results published in BIOMATH are also published in specialized journals, e.g. as a part of a more technical paper,  the publication in BIOMATH is cited. In the Introduction the authors are  requested to clearly state the contribution  their paper makes to knowledge as well as the significance of this contribution, e.g. in relation to open problems, facilitation of future research, etc.  

All articles must be prepared in the prescribed style (IEEEtrans style modified for BIOMATH) in Latex. Styles and templates are available here. The bibliography can be in any style as long as the same style is applied uniformly and consistently to all references. When available, a doi link should be provided. The respective web address should be placed on a new line at the end of the reference. 

First submission requires only a pdf file of the manuscript for reviewing purposes. The source files will be requested upon acceptance of the manuscript for publication. Input files of the Latex source file like figures, pictures, tables, bibliography, etc., should be uploaded as a one zip file. In the furst submission the authors are requested to suggest potential reviewers of the manuscript. Three to six names should be entered in the box "Comments for the Editor". Please note that the section editor is under no obligation to contact any of the referees suggested by the author. Nevertheless, making such suggestions can significantly speed up the reviewing process.
