Call for submissions: Structural biology applications of coherent X-ray lasers

Special Article Collection

Structural biology applications of coherent X-ray lasers
Organizers: Prof. Janos Hajdu and Dr. Filipe Maia (Uppsala University)

Partnered with the Coherent X-ray Imaging Data Bank (CXIDB)

Scientific Data is inviting submissions releasing and describing datasets generating from the use of coherent X-ray lasers in the study of biological structure. Submitted articles will be considered for inclusion in a special article collection to be launched in the first half of 2016.

Submissions may describe datasets from any application of coherent X-ray imaging to biological systems, including nanocrystallography and single particle applications. Authors may submit manuscripts describing datasets that were used in previous research articles or datasets that have not been previously reported.

Researchers will be asked to deposit their datasets to CXIDB, alongside their Data Descriptor manuscript, and to release their data to the wider research community upon publication.

Researchers with structural biology datasets developed through other cutting-edge non-classical techniques, are also encouraged to submit manuscripts to the journal, which may be highlighted in parallel with this special collection.

To be considered for publication among the first papers in this collection, manuscripts should be submitted to the editorial office by February 1; submissions after this date are welcome, and may still be considered for inclusion in this rolling collection on a case-by-case basis.

Interested in publishing in this special collection?
