: New Editorial Board

On July 17, 2014 the Editor-in-Chief and the complete Editorial Board of the Archives of Biological Sciences (ABS) were changed due to indications of misconduct and deviation from good scientific publishing practice. The mission statement of the newly instated Editorial Board of the ABS is to reestablish and uphold the principle of best practice in scholarly publishing.

Hereby the new Editorial Board of the ABS informs authors that all manuscripts submitted before August 1, 2014 will be reviewed, regardless of whether they were accepted for publication. The Editorial Board will only review papers that are within the scope of the ABS and that have been presented according to the new guidelines for authors available on the ABS site.

The Editorial Board of the ABS deeply regrets any inconvenience this may have caused contributors.
