Archives of Biological Sciences: Announcements https://www.serbiosoc.org.rs/arch/index.php/abs <p>The <em>Archives of Biological Sciences</em> is published quarterly in an open-access electronic format. The journal uses open-source software for the management of peer-reviewed academic journals, the <em>Open Journal System</em> created by the Public Knowledge Project and released under the GNU General Public License. Instructions for the submission using OJS are available on the following link <a href="https://openjournalsystems.com/ojs-3-user-guide/submitting-an-article/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://openjournalsystems.com/ojs-3-user-guide/submitting-an-article/</a><br /><br /><strong>Submitted manuscripts should be full-length original research articles, </strong>excluding technical reports and short publications such as communications, comments, notes, data in brief (data articles), and case reports.<br />The <em>Archives of Biological Sciences</em> is a multidisciplinary journal that covers original research in subjects in life science, including biology, ecology, human biology, and biomedical research. The journal features research articles in genetics, botany, zoology, the ecology of higher and lower terrestrial and aquatic plants and animals, prokaryote biology, algology, mycology, entomology, biological systematics, evolution, biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, including all aspects of normal cell functioning, from embryonic to differentiated tissues and in different pathological states, molecular physiology, chronobiology, thermal biology, cryobiology, radiobiology, neurobiology, immunology, human biology, including the molecular basis of specific human pathologies, genotyping of disease, disease management.<br /><strong>Unsolicited scientific review articles<br /></strong>A review article should critically examine published literature in a specific field as an authoritative research analysis. It should organize, evaluate, and identify patterns and trends, synthesize the literature, identify research gaps, and recommend new research areas.<br /><strong>*</strong><br /><strong>Subjects that are not considered by the journal </strong>include articles on<em> in silico</em> biology that are not supported by laboratory experiments. The journal requires that research be grounded in empirical data and that experimental findings be rigorously tested and reproducible. While <em>in silico</em> studies can be a valuable tool for generating hypotheses and testing theoretical models, they are preliminary to experimental research, rather than a substitute for it. Therefore, the Archives of Biological Sciences requires that <em>in silico</em> studies be accompanied by experimental data that support the conclusions drawn from the computational analyses. The journal requires some experimental validation or corroboration of the <em>in silico</em> results.<br />Subjects that fall under life sciences but that do not contain sufficient interest for the journal include topics in dentistry, subjects in food technology, veterinary science, agronomy, field experiments in agriculture, forestry, silviculture, soil science, descriptions of technological processes, experimental methods and solutions, instrumentation, technical reports containing chemical characterizations with no research into a biological explanatory mechanism, patient case studies, short faunistic or floristic notes, checklists of limited geographical areas (e.g. a country), description of a single new species in a genus that already contains many, articles describing new species on a single specimen.</p> en-US CiteScore 2023 https://www.serbiosoc.org.rs/arch/index.php/abs/announcement/view/51 <p>CiteScore 2023 counts the citations received in 2020-2023 to articles, reviews, conference papers, book chapters and data papers published in 2020-2023, and divides this by the number of publications published in 2020-2023.</p> <p><img src="https://www.serbiosoc.org.rs/arch/public/site/images/zjankovic/citescore2023-archives-of-biologic.png" alt="CiteScore 2023" width="180" height="100"></p> Archives of Biological Sciences 2024-06-18 YUGATO IS A FRAUDULENT SITE https://www.serbiosoc.org.rs/arch/index.php/abs/announcement/view/49 <p>We strongly caution against any involvement with yugato.org. Engaging with such websites supports unethical behavior and potentially exposes individuals to legal liabilities and compromised content.<br>It is important to support and engage with reputable scientific journals that uphold rigorous peer review processes, ethical standards, and transparency in publishing. These journals play a crucial role in advancing knowledge and ensuring the reliability of scientific findings.</p> <p>If you have concerns about a particular journal's credibility or practices, it is best to consult with experts in the field or refer to established resources for evaluating journal quality, such as the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Journal Citation Reports (JCR), or the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).</p> Archives of Biological Sciences 2024-03-13 Issue 75(4) https://www.serbiosoc.org.rs/arch/index.php/abs/announcement/view/47 <p><strong>Issue 75(4)</strong> contains articles on different topics including,</p> <ul> <li class="show"><strong>Behavioral analysis</strong> of a captive male Bornean orangutan (<em>Pongo pygmaeus</em>) exposed to environmental changes [Larsen et al.]</li> <li class="show"><strong>Purple tea catechin</strong> and cisplatin synergism in<strong> triple-negative breast cancer </strong>[Ndacyayisenga et al.]</li> <li class="show"><strong>Intermediate concentration of cyclophosphamide</strong> does not deplete regulatory T cells in mice [Radulović et al.]</li> <li class="show"><strong>Data mining</strong> associations between Indian marine fish catch and environmental data [Gladju et al.]</li> <li class="show"><em>In vitro</em> examination of <strong>low-intensity light</strong> on <strong><em>Hericium erinaceus</em> (Bull.: Fr.)
