Terms and Conditions


Only articles written in English will be published. All articles will be subject to peer review and the scientific standard is the only criterion for accepting a manuscript for publication. The style should be clear and concise. Excessive use of jargon or unusual abbreviations should be avoided. Contributors must send an electronic copy of the text, tables and figures to piocontieditor@biolifesas.org, and it is essential that they retain a copy of the original manuscript, as the Editor does not accept responsibility for loss of papers submitted. Papers are accepted on the understanding that no substantial part has been, or will be published elsewhere, and once they have been accepted they remain the copyright of the journal. The institutional e-mail addresses of ALL AUTHORS must be provided with the submission.
