Call for Full Papers: International Journal of Knowledge Discovery in Bioinformatics

The Editors-in-Chief of the International Journal of Knowledge Discovery in Bioinformatics (IJKDB) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, coverage, and guidelines for submission to IJKDB.
The mission of the International Journal of Knowledge Discovery in Bioinformatics (IJKDB) is to increase awareness of interesting and challenging biomedical problems and to inspire new knowledge discovery solutions, which can be translated into further biological and clinical studies. IJKDB is aimed at researchers in the areas of bioinformatics, knowledge discovery, machine learning, and data structure, as well as practitioners in the life sciences industry. In addition to original research papers in bioinformatics, this journal emphasizes software and tools that exploit the knowledge discovery techniques to address biological problems and databases that contain useful biomedical data generated in wet and dry labs. IJKDB encompasses discovery notes that report newly found biological discoveries using computational techniques and includes reviews and tutorials on relevant computational and experimental techniques for translational research and knowledge discovery in life sciences.
Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited to) the following:
Bioimage analysis
Bioinformatics databases
Biological data and text mining algorithms
Biological data collection and cleansing
Biological data integration
Biological data management
Biological knowledge discovery
Biological knowledge visualization
Biological networks (protein interaction, metabolic, transcription factor, signaling, etc.)
Biological tools/applications
Clinical research informatics
Computational evolutionary biology
Data mining and its applications in bioinformatics
Disease bioinformatics
Drug discovery
Gene expression analysis
Gene regulation
Genome annotation
Integration of biological and clinical data
Molecular evolution and phylogeny
Probability theory
Protein/RNA structure prediction
Sequence analysis
Statistics and its applications
Structural proteomics
Systems biology
Translational bioinformatics
Prospective authors should note that only original and previously unpublished articles will be considered. Interested authors must consult the journal’s guidelines for manuscript submissions at http://www.igi-global.com/development/author_info/guide.asp prior to submission. All article submissions will be forwarded to at least 3 members of the Editorial Review Board of the journal for double-blind, peer review. Final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the reviews received from the reviewers. All submissions must be forwarded electronically.
Please submit all papers using the online system at http://datam.i2r.a-star.edu.sg/ijkdb/.
All inquiries should be directed to the attention of:
Xiao-Li Li and See-Kiong Ng
