All inquiries concerning the publication of accepted paper should be addressed to manuscript@bioinfopublication.org

Regarding Authorship:
Scientific writing is an explicit way of assigning responsibility and giving credit for intellectual work. Scientific writing practices should be judged by how honestly they reflect actual contributions to the final product. Scientific writing is important to the reputation, academic promotion, and grant support of the individuals involved as well as to the strength and reputation of their institution.

Bioinfo publications journals do not require all authors of a research paper to sign the letter of submission, nor do impose an order on the list of authors. Submission to Bioinfo publications is taken by the journal to mean that all the listed authors have agreed all of the contents. The corresponding (submitting) author is responsible for having ensured that this agreement has been attained and for managing all communication between the journal and all co-authors, before and after publication of manuscripts. Any change to the authors list after submission, such as a change in the order of the authors or the deletion or addition of authors needs to be approved by a signed letter from every author.

Co-author contributions note:
Manuscript authors are strongly encouraged to include a statement in the end notes to specify the actual contribution of each coauthor to the completed work. International Bioinfo publications journals allow to coauthors to be specified as having contributed equally to the work being described. Author contribution statement should be clear if the work are not equally done.

About Peer-Review process:
Bioinfo publications journals aims at rapid publication of high quality research while maintaining rigorous but sympathetic peer review process. Manuscripts (other than those that are of insufficient quality or unlikely to be competitive enough for publication) will be peer-reviewed by two or more experts in the fields, and a decision is returned to the authors in about one week. If due to special circumstance, the review process takes more time, authors will be informed by email. Manuscripts with significant results will be reviewed and published at the highest priority and speed. Possible decisions on a manuscript are:

* accepted as it is
* accepted after minor revision
* accepted after major revision
* rejected

If minor revision is required, authors should return a revised version as soon as possible within one week. If major revision is required, authors should return a revised version within two to three weeks.

About duplicate publications:
Material submitted to Bioinfo publications journals must be original and not published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors submitting a contribution to Bioinfo publications journals who have related material under consideration or in press elsewhere should upload a clearly marked copy at the time of submission and draw the editor attention to it in their cover letter. If a part of a contribution that an author wishes to submit to Bioinfo publications journals has appeared or will appear elsewhere, the author must specify the details in the cover letter. Consideration by the Bioinfo publications journals is possible if the main result, conclusion, or implications are not apparent from the other work, or if there are other factors, for example if the other work is published in a language other than English.

Author is responsible to get permission from previous publisher or copyright holder if an author is re-using any part of paper (i.e., figure or figures) published elsewhere, or that is copyrighted.
The editors consider all material in good faith that their journals have full permission to publish every part of the submitted material including illustrations.

Plagiarism in manuscript:
Plagiarism in manuscript is the use or close imitation of the language and ideas of another author and representation of them as ones own original published work. Duplicate publication, sometimes called self-plagiarism, occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from getting an identical paper published in multiple journals, where authors add small amounts of new data to a previous paper.
Plagiarism in manuscript can be said to have clearly occurred when large chunks of text have been cut and pasted. Such manuscripts would not be considered for publication in Bioinfo publications journals. But minor plagiarism without dishonest intent is relatively frequent, for example when an author reuses parts of an introduction from an earlier paper. The editors will judge any case of which they become aware (either by their own knowledge of and reading about the literature, or when alerted by referees) on its own merits.
If a case of plagiarism comes to light after a paper is published in Bioinfo publications journals, the journal will conduct a preliminary investigation. If plagiarism is found, the journal will contact the author institute and funding agencies. A determination of misconduct will lead the Bioinfo publications journals to run a statement, bidirectionally linked online to and from the original paper, to note the plagiarism and to provide a reference to the plagiarized material. The paper containing the plagiarism will also be obviously marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.
