Nature Chemical Biology answers authors’ questions

Nature Chemical Biology is offering new content and functionality to authors. Online enhancements to the chemistry functionality are described here, with examples. And the journal is also introducing Primers, a series of peer-reviewed, one-page summaries of chemical or biological topics designed to jump-start readers’ ability to comprehend research in a particular area. Green fluorescent protein is the topic of this Primer, if you would like to take a look at the format. (See here for further information about this particular Primer.)

In the February 2009 issue (Nature Chem. Biol. 5, 61; 2009), the editors offer further guidelines and tips for authors submitting their research to the journal, following on from previous Editorials (Nature Chem. Biol. 4, 715; 2008 and 5, 1; 2009). In the February Editorial, the editors answer common questions:

Do you actually read cover letters?

Should I submit a Brief Communication or an Article?

What do I need to submit?

Must my manuscript be perfectly formatted?

Are presubmission inquiries useful?

How are papers assigned to editors?
