Preference will be accorded to manuscripts that develop new concepts or experimental approaches, particularly in the advancing areas of biochemical science. Manuscripts that are primarily theoretical in nature or in the field of bioinformatics must be directed toward explaining important results previously not understood, making important predictions that can be experimentally tested, or developing significant advances in theory of general interest to biochemists. Submission of manuscripts in emerging areas in chemical biology, biophysics, proteomics, model studies and structures, cellular and molecular biology, computational chemistry, and new methods development is encouraged especially if they address basic biochemical mechanisms. Publication of preliminary or inconclusive results is discouraged, as is the simultaneous publication of manuscripts of overlapping content. Submission of a manuscript to Biochemistry implies that the same work has not been published nor is under consideration for publication elsewhere. This policy also applies to material submitted for publication in an electronic database system of a public nature, which we consider to constitute prior publication. In addition, no legal restrictions must exist, e.g., those associated with the filing of patents. In addition to regular research reports, Biochemistry publishes four types of special articles: Rapid Reports, Accelerated Publications, New Concepts, and Current Topics. These are described below in detail. EDITORIAL ORGANIZATION AND REVIEWING PROCESS
