International Journal of Advances in Medical Biotechnology - IJAMB is an international peer-reviewed research journal that publishes Original Papers, Reviews, Mini-reviews, Perspectives, Emerging Technologies and Spotlights relating scientific discoveries and inventions in the disciplines of medical biotechnology and chemical medicine technology to their conversion into commercial products and processes. Submitted papers should indicate areas of novelty and significant advances to the current state of knowledge and understanding of the topic. Please read the Journal’s Aims and Scope for a detailed view of the publication areas.

Types of matter

Spotlight A Spotlight is a brief, lightly referenced article about an outstanding area, newsworthy advance or event in the field. Spotlights may report on the contemporary significance of new or established experimental methodologies and discoveries. These articles should be written in a lively and accessible style, be accompanied by a one-sentence abstract, a provocative image and caption and generally should not exceed 6 double-spaced manuscript pages (including tables and figures).

Perspective A Perspective is a lightly referenced scholarly opinion piece about current or future directions in a field. A Perspective can serve to assess the science directly concerned with a particular topic or report on relevant issues that may arise from the discipline (for example, policy, effects on society, regulatory issues and controversies). Perspectives that address interdisciplinary research areas or experimental results with significance to a broader audience are of particular interest to the Editors. The Perspective should be accompanied by an abstract and generally range from 6 to 12 double-spaced manuscript pages (including tables and figures).

Mini-review A Mini-review is a sharply focused summary and assessment of the relevant literature concerning any topic covered within the Aims and Scope of the Journal. These reviews are particularly effective when discussing cutting-edge advancements in the discipline. Mini-reviews should be accompanied by an abstract, are generally no longer than 12 double-spaced manuscript pages (2500 words including few tables and figures), and are selectively referenced.

Review A full-length critical Review provides a summary and discussion of the relevant literature about any topic covered within the Aims and Scope of the Journal. Reviews should be accompanied by an abstract and should be a maximum of 6000 words excluding references and tables.

Emerging Technologies This series of articles focuses on significant advances in technology that could lead in the near future to substantial improvements in commercial activities. The aim is to provide an authoritative discussion of newer technologies that are emerging from the research environment into industry. The articles should provide scientists, engineers and health professionals with sufficient information to allow assessment of the technology and its potential for commercial application. The articles should not exceed 10 double-spaced manuscript pages with references confined to seminal articles and review articles.

In addition to front matter the main aim of the Journal is to publish peer-reviewed research and this is achieved through:

Research Articles These form the major type of publication and details of the precise format for submission are given below. Important features required in a Research Paper include a Compound Abstract; Introduction setting out the work in the context of published literature and clearly indicating advances in knowledge; Experimental Procedures in sufficient detail to allow replication of the work and including analysis of replication and precision of data; concise presentation of Experimental Results followed by Discussion of significance of the findings without repeating earlier material.

We consider to analize content articles as commissioned, but the Journal also warmly welcomes ideas. Please contact the Editorial Office (ijamb@uniara.com.br) with your proposal; once a proposal is accepted or commissioned, detailed format guidelines will be provided. In general, the Journal prefers lively pieces of interest to a wider audience. All articles are subject to peer review.
