No charge No charge ASBMB will consider requests for waiver of publication charges if research funds are not available for publication costs. Waiver requests must be made at the time of submission and the request must be co-signed by an institutional official certifying that the authors do not have research funds available for publication costs.
Pricing is based upon the quantity ordered. Co-author consent and copyright All listed authors must concur in the submission and the final version must be seen and approved by all authors. All authors are responsible for the content of the manuscript. Learn more about authorship requirements here.
Return to top Preparing the manuscript text Authors should prepare their manuscript in Microsoft Word 6. Please use the overall organization and layout of the PDF below as a guide to format your paper, paying particular attention to the notes in red.
Do not include line numbers if desired, a second file that contains line numbers to facilitate review can be uploaded; see below. Additional instructions about specific parts of the paper can be found below, and are presented in the order they should appear in the text [title page containing the title, author names, institutions, running title, corresponding author name and email address, and key wordsabstract, introduction, results, discussion, experimental procedures, acknowledgments, conflict of interest statement, references, footnotes, tables, and figures with their figure legends].
Title Should be intelligible to JBC readers who are not specialists in the field and should convey your essential points clearly. Should be short no more than characters including spaces and informative.
Should use sentence case i. Acronyms or abbreviations may be used without definition in the title, but authors should strive to limit abbreviations for clarity.
Any abbreviations that do not appear on this list of common terms should be defined at first usage in the abstract or main text.
Authors Should include the complete names of all authors and affiliations where the work was performed for those authors who have since moved, please indicate their present address as a separate note.
Can include non-Latin characters for author names, as long as the characters can be encoded in Unicode e. These characters can only be used for author names, not author affiliations or titles.
Non-Latin characters should be enclosed in parentheses after the transliterated version see example below. Running title Should be at the top of each page except the first, where it should appear below the author affiliations.
May not exceed 60 characters including spaces. Keywords Should include at least five keywords from this list.
May also include keywords that are not on the list, up to ten keywords in total. Abstract Should describe the background, methods used, central findings, and conclusions drawn in the manuscript.
Should avoid specialized terms and abbreviations as much as possible. Abbreviations not on the abbreviations page should be spelled out upon first usage.
Should be no more than words. References to other papers as reference numbers or full citations are not allowed. Introduction Should present the purpose of the study and its relationship to earlier work in the field; it is not meant to be an extensive review of the literature.
Results Should describe the data collected. Any chemical equations, structural formulas or mathematical equations should be placed between successive lines of text. Discussion Should focus on the interpretation of the results rather than repeating information from the Results section.
Experimental procedures Should describe the overall experimental design briefly but with sufficient information to permit a qualified reader to repeat the experiments; truly new procedures should be described in detail. Previously published procedures should be referenced, and modifications given in detail where necessary to repeat the work.
If the study characterizes the activity of new compounds, compound structures and the protocol for obtaining the compound must be provided. Should include all relevant information regarding data collection and analysis sample sizes, quantification methods, etc.
If the manuscript includes human or animal studies, authors must include a statement in the Experimental Procedures as to whether the studies were approved and by which review board. For human subjects, authors must further state that the studies abide by the Declaration of Helsinki principles.
When an experimental procedure described in a manuscript would benefit from a step-by-step protocol, JBC encourages authors to submit detailed protocols for peer review and publication in Bio-protocol or to deposit them at protocols.
Acknowledgments Corresponding authors of NIH-supported papers must include this disclaimer in a footnote after the conflict of interest statement: Can include any brief note s of thanks to people who helped with the study.
If there are no conflicts of interest for any author, the following statement should be inserted: Abbreviations and nomenclature Should be defined in a single footnote inserted after the first abbreviation in the abstract or main text is used.
Abbreviations in the title do not need to be defined within the title; define them if necessary see next at their first appearance in the abstract or main text.
