Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • This submission has not been previously published nor has it been submitted for consideration in another journal.
  • Details for all contributors: full first, middle and last names, e.mail, academic/research rank, affiliation, country, ORCiD iD will be entered online in the field 'Contributors'.
  • The manuscript will be uploaded as an Arch. Biol. Sci. Template WORD document [Item I].
  • All data supporting all findings if not deposited in a public repository will be uploaded as a Data Report PDF file [Item II].
  •  Figures containing images will be supplied as one TIFF file per complete figure [Item III].
  • The License Agreement signed by the corresponding author will be uploaded [Item IV].

Author Guidelines


A submission must include ITEMS  I (the Manuscript),  II (the Data Report),  IV (the License Agreement), and  III (TIFF file(s)) as required.

ITEM I          Manuscript
The Archives of Biological Sciences manuscript layout / Template WORD document with a step-by-step guide for presenting a manuscript must be implemented.
The Template can be downloaded here: Arch. Biol. Sci. - Manuscript Template

ITEM II          Data Report
The Data Report contains data supporting findings presented in the submission when not deposited in a public repository. The editorial policy of the Archives of Biological Sciences states that submission of a manuscript implies that materials described in the manuscript, including all relevant raw data, will be freely available to any scientist wishing to use them for non-commercial purposes.
The Data Report contains individual facts or items of information, often numeric, that support all findings statistically summarized in the manuscript in tables and figures when not deposited in a public repository. A PDF program should be used to build a single pdf document containing a compilation of multiple tables and annotated image files. The data report is not copyedited and is uploaded and published as provided. Readers will access the file via a hyperlink in the paper.
The data report must be formatted and presented as per the journal's instructions for authors and not as an inappropriately organized collection of data. A page break must separate one complete table or figure from the next table or figure. Tables and images contained in a data report file must be labeled, starting with "Raw Table S1" and "Raw Image S1", and clearly described in the title and caption. The raw tables and raw images should be associated in accompanying legends and captions with definitive tables and figures in the manuscript. Quantified numerical data for each sample used for statistical analysis must be shown. The Data Report file should contain mathematical proofs of the results. Figures of replicates for experiments in which representative data is shown in the main text and other essential background information that would disrupt the flow of the main text but remain crucial to understanding and reproducing the research shown should be added. Western blots/electrophoretic profiles: All images for entire membranes of Western blotting/electrophoretic profiles with size markers and staining must be shown. Raw dot and gel images must be clearly labeled to identify the loading order, the identity of the experimental samples and the molecular weight markers. Background bands should not be obscured by the annotation. Inappropriate image manipulation must be avoided. Methods used to capture and analyze the image must be explained.

ITEM III         TIFF file(s)
Required when a composite figure contains an image.

ITEM IV         License Agreement
The corresponding author must complete and upload the Archives of Biological Sciences License Agreement

Potential Reviewers
The corresponding author may provide suitable potential reviewers with their email addresses, affiliations, links to recently published articles, and a brief explanation of why the scientists would be good referees.
