Manuscript Preparation

Review Process

Members of the editorial board will review the received manuscripts to determine if the manuscripts are appropriate for evaluation by expert reviewers. The manuscripts not prepared in the advised style will be sent back to authors without scientific review. Editorial staff sends the reference number to the authors upon manuscript registration at the Editorial Office. The authors are encouraged to suggest the names of possible reviewers for their papers, however we reserve the right for the final selection of the expert reviewers. We strive to return reviewers’ comments to authors within 5 weeks. The manuscripts after authors have made final revisions will be reviewed again by the editors. Accepted papers will be published online at NBA promptly.

Criteria for Manuscripts

Editorial Board of NBA considers the manuscripts in all areas of nano bio-technologies for publication with the understanding that any part of its essential contents hasn't been published previously in print form or electronically. The submission of the manuscripts should be accompanied by the statement that the work has not been published previously or submitted elsewhere for review and copyright transfer. NBA discourages the submission of more than one manuscript dealing with related aspects of the same study.

Conflict of Interests

Authors of the manuscripts should disclose at the time of submission any financial arrangement they may have with a corporate whose product plays a major role in the submitted manuscripts or with a company making a competitive product. Such information will be held in confidence while the manuscripts are under review. The editorial decision will not be affected by this information. If the paper is accepted for publication, the members of editorial board may discuss with the authors the manner in which such information can be communicated to the readers.

NBA requires that reviewers and the members of editorial board reveal in a letter to the Editor-in-Chief any relationships that they have that could be construed as causing a conflict of interest with regard to a manuscript under review. Any financial relationships with commercial companies involved with a product under study should be included in the letter.

English Corrections

This journal is published in English, so it is essential that for proper refereeing and quick publication all manuscripts be submitted in grammatically correct English. For this purpose we ask that non-native English speakers ensure their manuscripts are checked before submitting them for consideration. We suggest that for this purpose your manuscript be revised by an English speaking colleague before submission.
