Aim and Scope


Open-access journal publishing high quality, editorially selected and peer reviewed advances in biology

Communications Biology is an open access journal from Nature Research publishing high-quality research, reviews and commentary in all areas of the biological sciences. Research papers published by the journal represent significant advances bringing new biological insight to a specialized area of research. We also aim to provide a community forum for issues of importance to all biologists, regardless of sub-discipline.

The scope of the journal includes all of the basic biological and biomedical sciences. Primary research published in Communications Biology includes novel experimental results, secondary data analysis and innovative experimental and computational methods. We also consider submissions from adjacent research fields where the central advance of the study is of interest to biologists, for example, chemical biology, biophysics and biomedical engineering.

Acceptance Rate


The acceptance rate/percentage of any academic journal/conference depends upon many parameters. Some of the critical parameters are listed below.

  • The demand or interest of researchers/scientists in publishing in a specific Journal/Conference.
  • Peer review complexity and timeline.
  • The mix of unsolicited and invited submissions.
  • The time it takes from manuscript submission to final publication.
  • And Many More.

It is essential to understand that the acceptance rate/rejection rate of papers varies among journals. Some Journals considers all the manuscripts submissions as a basis of acceptance rate computation. On the other hand, few consider the only manuscripts sent for peer review or few even not bother about the accurate maintenance of total submissions. Hence, it can provide a rough estimation only.

The best way to find out the acceptance rate is to reach out to the associated editor or to check the official website of the Journal/Conference.
