Aim and Scope


Biology Direct will serve the life science research community as an open access, peer-reviewed online journal encompassing the full spectrum of biological science, and will make all research articles available free of charge on the website immediately on publication.

Biology Direct"s key aim is to provide authors and readers with an alternative to the traditional model of peer review. This includes making the author responsible for obtaining reviewers" reports via the journal"s Editorial Board; making the peer review process open rather than anonymous; and making the reviewers" reports public, thus increasing the responsibility of the referees and eliminating sources of abuse in the refereeing process.

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.
