Hello BioForumers,

POL (BioForum) is going to launch a new scientific journal on biology methods and protocols. Over the years, POL has been receiving protocol submissions from researchers. We feel it is time for us to have a formal journal. How do you like this idea and will you be willing to help - for instance, contribute manuscripts, serve as a reviewer or editor?

Any thought will be appreciated.

Cheers!

Awesome. Good luck with the new journal. I'm willing to act as a reviewer, but it depends on what qualifications you need for that - still working on the PhD...

Only online or also printed? Anyway both needs a lot of effort and some money input I guess...

That is....if she posts at all.

I think it's great, if you can afford to do it.

how will this differ from Biotechniques? or will it be in addition, since there are so many protocols and methods around?

a distinguishing feature would be for sure to separate outdated and wrong protocols (by chance or deliberately), e.g. by trying them out or rigorous reviewing as far as possible and needed, against good and well-established protocols. Also which protocols fit better for which problems, and gives which results (quick and dirty vs. slow and perfect as an example)
