Aims and scope                          
International Journal of Analytical Bio-Science, official journal of the Society of Analytical Bio-Science, publishes fully refereed papers of international authorship that contribute to existing knowledge in all fields of studies relating to the development of biotechnology with special emphasis on analytical methods used for evaluating biological specimens.

Submitted manuscripts should not previously have been published either in whole or in part, in any language, except in the form of an abstract for a scientific meeting.
In addition to full manuscripts (Research Articles), the journal features Review Articles, Brief Notes, and Reports. Prospective authors should consult recent issues of the journal to determine the appropriate category and style for their manuscript. The first author in Japan is required to be a membership of the Society of Analytical Bio-Science.

Animal and human research
Research involving humans must be carried out in accordance with ethical standards of the responsible committee (institutional or regional) or with the Helsinki Declaration. Studies involving animal experimentation must include a statement of compliance with the guidelines of the author's institution.

Review process
The following is the editorial workflow that every manuscript submitted to the journal undergoes during the course of the peer-review process. Authors should indicate two or more reviewers from the list of Reviewing Editors. 
The reviewers' comments will be sent to the first author by the Editor together with a decision regarding acceptability for publication. All accepted manuscripts will be published in accordance with the date of acceptance. Any revised manuscript will retain its original date of receipt only if it is resubmitted within two months of the date of the letter reporting the editorial decision. The entire editorial workflow is performed using the online Manuscript Tracking System.

Manuscripts should be in English, double-spaced, typed (Times New Roman) on one side of a sheet of A4 paper with 2.5 cm margins on both sides. Start each of the following sections on a new page: title page, Summary, 1. Introduction, 2. Materials and Methods, 3. Results, 4. Discussion, Conflicts of interest, Acknowledgements, References, each Table, and Figure legends. Number pages in the center of the bottom beginning with the title page.
The journal publishes Research Articles and Review Articles which must be 10 printed pages or less and Brief Notes and Reports which must be 6 printed pages or less, in principle.

Title page
Indicate: category of the manuscript; title; each author's first name and last name; name and address of department (s) in which the research was conducted; 3 to 5 key words; and name and address of corresponding author.
