Bioinformatics and Biology Insights is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on bioinformatics methods and their applications which must pertain to biological insights. All papers should be easily amenable to biologists and as such help bridge the gap between theories and applications.

It both complements SAGE Publishing's subject-specific journals in the area and also seeks to place bioinformatics in the broader context of biology. The journal welcomes all submissions in the field of bioinformatics and also submissions dealing with the relationship between bioinformatics and the broader field of biology. Submissions of original research, reviews, tutorials, rapid communications, expert commentaries, letters, application notes, and point–counter-point articles are welcomed for peer review. No word limits are imposed, but authors are reminded that excessive word-counts may attract adverse comment by peer reviewers and discourage readers.

The submission of tutorial-type articles is encouraged, in which methods which have been developed in the recent past are reviewed in such a way as to make them readily comprehensible for Biologists. Papers discussing methodologies are encouraged, providing they explicitly demonstrate that new biological insights have been gained or that earlier methods used to gain a new insight can be replaced.

This journal welcomes new manuscripts for peer review on the following topics:

  • Bioinformatics
  • Computational biology and the broader field of biology
  • Methods used in the analysis and annotation of structures
  • The relationship between bioinformatics and the broader field of biology
