About the collection

BMC Bioinformatics is calling for submissions to our Collection on the analysis of biophysical data.

In biophysics, approaches and methods of physics are applied to the study of biological systems. Most commonly known techniques include X-ray crystallography and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, but extend as far as thermal shift assays, circular dichroism, isothermal titration calorimetry and small and wide angle scattering just to name a few.

The analysis of data originating from biophysical experiments is often conducted using dedicated platforms and software implementations and can provide insights into structural and dimensional features of biological systems, as well as their interactions and physical properties.

This Collection welcomes submissions on new software and computational processing of biophysical data, as well as significant advancements and new implementations of existing solutions.

Submission Guidelines

Back to top

This Collection welcomes submission of original Research Articles. Should you wish to submit a different article type, please read our submission guidelines to confirm that type is accepted by the journal. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select ["Analysis of biophysical data"] from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Guest Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Guest Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
