Aims and Scope
Current Synthetic & Systems Biology engages in publishing broad based on emerging field of synthetic and system biology focusing on the design and construction of biological devices and systems for a variety of biotechnology and medical applications combining biological research and engineering, for example: designing, modifying and constructing synthetic gene networks with network systems biology approaches to fight infectious diseases diabetes
In today's wired world, information is available at the click through internet. As an open access publication the Current Synthetic & Systems Biology audience reach is greater than that of any subscription-based journal. In addition to increasing the visibility and impact of published work due to its open access format the Current Synthetic & Systems Biology increases convenience, reach and retrieval power, while also providing barrier-free access to the research literature. Free online literature is available for software that facilitates full-text searching, indexing, mining, summarizing, translating, querying, linking, recommending, alerting, "mash-ups" and other forms of data processing and analysis. Current Synthetic & Systems Biology puts rich and poor on an equal footing for these key resources and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content.
Longdom Publishing is committed to open access. We strongly believe that removing barriers to research published online will greatly aid to the progress in science and technical disciplines.
All Longdompublished articles will be assigned DOI provided by CrossRef. Current Synthetic & Systems Biology will be kept upto date with the latest advances in the field. Papers published in the Current Synthetic & Systems Biology will reach the readers directly by e-mail for free of cost.
The Journal is archived online in the transactions of the Longdom Publishing, which provides the international scientific community with immediate and permanent access to individual papers.
Current Synthetic & Systems Biology accepts online letters to the editors, brief comments that contributes to the previously published articles or other relevant findings in Longdomfield.
Open Access is a publication model, that enables the dissemination of research articles to the global community without restriction usually through the internet. Thus, all the articles published under Open Access can be accessed by anyone with internet connection. The journal, Current Synthetic & Systems Biology strongly supports the Open Access initiative. Abstracts and full texts (HTML, PDF and XML format) of all articles published by Current Synthetic & Systems Biology are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication.
All works published by Longdom Publishing are under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License. This permits anyone to copy, distribute, transmit and adapt the work provided the original work and source is appropriately cited. Current Synthetic & Systems Biology supports the Bethesda Statement on Open Access Publishing.
Definition of Open Access Publication
An Open Access Publication is one that meets the following two conditions:
- The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant(s) to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship, as well as the right to make small numbers of printed copies for their personal use.
- A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable Open Access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving (for the biomedical sciences, PubMed Central is such a repository).
- As a member of Publishers International Linking Association, PILA, Current Synthetic & Systems Biology (of Longdom Publishing) follows the Creative Commons Attribution License and Scholars Open Access publishing policies.
Community standards, rather than copyright law, will continue to provide the mechanism for enforcement of proper attribution and responsible use of the published work, as they do now.
