Focus and Scope

The Jahangirnagar University Journal of Biological Sciences is an International and multidisciplinary research and review journal. It is published in June and December of each year. Original research papers and review articles are accepted on the understanding that these are subjected to editorial revision, that their contents have not been published elsewhere and that in consideration of acceptance of a text for publication the copyright of the said text is assigned to the Jahangirnagar University Journal of Biological Sciences.  

Peer Review Process

JUJBS adopts an international review standard which lays emphasis on research groundwork, novelty, presentation, and format. Papers that authors submit to JUJBS must be original work, never published earlier in any medium, and not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. It also focuses on whether the paper is based on original research, as well as creativity of research method and rationality of conclusion.

The practice of peer review is to ensure that good biological science is published. It is a process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out on all reputable journals. Our referees play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of biological Sciences and manuscripts are peer reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

Initial manuscript evaluation by the journal office followed by the editor-in-chief evaluation will make ready the paper for the further peer review process. The final decision and time to publication will be notified to the author after necessary double-blind review, where both the referee and the author remain anonymous throughout the process.
