It is one of the relatively recognized journals in computational biology. I am lucky to have an article published on it. The reviewers were very professional and were very helpful in improving the quality of the article. The editor was also very nice and responded to the replies in time. I support it.

The review speed was really fast. I submitted an article for graduation. Major revision was making. It can be seen that the reviewers give suggestions from different fields. Compared with Bioinformatics, you need to pay for it.

This is a better biology journal (it is said to be ranked second in computational biology journals in 2012). I had to be sure to find someone to edit the English writing for my paper before I submitted my manuscript. In terms of the submission cycle: The first step was the editorial invitation and the preliminary examination (about 10 days); then the external review, three reviewers participated (took about 1 month); according to the comments of the reviewers, usually a deadline is given; the second review portion was faster (about ten days); then the editorial decision phase (about 10 days); finally, you will be notified of the payment and official publication time…In addition, the journal requires contributors to typeset their own figures etc., which can be a bit of work.

good journal of bioinformatics and computational biology, selectd 3, two trialsAccepted after the draft, rejected after a review.Compared with other bioinformatics journals, PCBs pay more attention to the refinement of biological problems, and have higher requirements on the story line. In addition, the statistical requirements for methodological innovation articles are more stringent.

A very difficult journal.Of particular concern to algorithms, it should not be the same as bioinformatics algorithms, and is a journal of computational biology.There are also several computational analysis of apparent aspects.The rate of rejection of academic cattle is close to 95%.
