Journal of Young Biologists and Medical Doctors

Editor-in-Chief: Andrei A. Constantinescu
Publication dates: bi-annually (February and July)
Publisher: Trivent Publishing, Etele út 59-61, H-1119 Budapest 

Scope and description
The Journal of Young Biologists and Medical DoctorsTM (YBMD) is an open access bi-annual double blind peer reviewed journal. As its title implies, it was developed by and for young medical doctors and young researchers in the fields of medicine. It aims to make life easier for young scientists by developing a new publication concept (modular publication) while keeping the standards of high quality. The journal thus offers a new (humanized) presentation layout.

The center of our concept is research targeting human and animal life improvement. The YBMDTM is comprised of sections, each dealing with a specific sub-field of this type of research. We welcome original articles and studies on subjects dealing with genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, pharmacology & drug discovery, bioethics, biochemistry, developmental biology, biotechnology, biomedical engineering, ecology & toxicology, microbiology, neuroscience, biophysics, molecular medicine, physiology, oncology & cancer research, metabolic diseases, cardiovascular diseases, immunology, neurology, hematology, infectious diseases.

As young researchers ourselves, we developed YBMD as a platform to ease our work and our peers’ work. What are the main outcomes?

  - Translational aperture
- Faster data publication
- Transparent publication procedure and decisions
- Increase data protection
- Effective and fast validation of project stages
- Simpler publication, thus enhanced integrity
- Increased visibility for tight budget research
- Faster information digest
- Faster and more diverse research development
- Wider and more profound scientific inclusion
- Increase access to the worldwide stage of publications
- Ultra short formatting – 30-minute comprehension
- Both academic and corporate inclusion

Furthermore, we support authors with:

  • Flexibility in the promotion of publishable data: we publish applied research, basic research, clinical studies, reviews, opinions, negative results, descriptive experimental designs, etc.
  • The authors should not fear whether their paper will be published, but rather work with the Editorial team to detect how to publish the work -- we encourage constructive work in an Editorial-Author binomial manner for positive outcomes
  • Readership feedback. We developed a platform for live exchange between parts (authors, readers, editors)

  MODULAR PUBLICATION

YBMD is proposing a new publication concept to help young academics, students, and researchers disseminate their studies and results.

While we also welcome traditional publications (applied research, basic research, clinical studies, reviews), we encourage authors to send us publications in modular formats. With Modular publication, we encourage authors to publish their theses research, in bulks (modules) as they evolve with their studies. Modular publication permits authors to validate smaller blocks of results faster. This type of publication allows preliminary data to be published, thus drawing attention to the author’s work and quality. Even if the preliminary data is not fully feasible, it will open doors to new publications and make proof of the author’s scientific activity in an open access environment. The faster publication given by modularity results in higher data digest and increased development of end-products (applied or theoretical)!

Modular publication is aided by the following benefits:
Tertiary publications
Resolving patenting issues
Publication of negative results

Publication of descriptive experimental designs

  Tertiary publications: after having published the research in several modules, authors, especially students, (because of the non-restrictive copyright we offer in this series*) will be allowed to publish their entire work as a whole elsewhere or within Trivent Publishing

* The copyright we hold is a CC copyright which demands that any modules published elsewhere be cited. Republication is bonded with the source citation of each module.


Resolving patenting issues: modular publishing permits researchers to evade disclosure of confidential data before national/international legal protection, yet expose their work in the academic climate. For example, if preliminary data are widely presented in articles or conference abstracts, legal registration and protection (patent) is afterwards impossible. Thus, scientists handling data which demands successive patenting must publish short result blocks in a fast pace (right after patenting and right before another one). Here, our concept meets their demands offering the flexibility to balance between confidentiality and academic exposure.

Publication of negative results: Most publications consider negative results as "not interesting." However, such information can save invaluable time and money for those concerned by the respective topic. Knowing that "something" is not working as expected has great value for the advancement in science.

Publication of descriptive experimental designs: Not only mechanistics are important for biologists. We welcome smaller, simpler research work presenting effects only (without signaling pathways description). This type of publication can be of great help for more complex projects.

The stick-to-the-subject approach

We encourage a stick-to-the-subject approach. “Restructured manuscripts” in ultra-short formatting (max. 30 minutes for comprehension) are welcomed as following:
  • Abstract: brief (in 3 statements: hypothesis, main results, main conclusion) comprising of graphics, narrative style
  • Introduction should consist only of hypothesis and of a brief description of the scientific context. For deeper understanding bibliographic references should be indicated
  • Methods should be described in figures, legends accordingly
  • Results are exposed only as figures, tables etc.
  • Discussion should be short, critical and comparative
  • Complementary description of any kind (methods, results etc.) should be specific, objective and evoked under „Special remarks”

  READERSHIP FEEDBACK

We are up-to-date with the latest trends, so we are helping both our authors and readers get the best experience with YBMD. We thus developed, within our open access platform, a means of communication between reader and author.

Underneath each article published open access, you will find a button which reads “Send feedback.” Click on it and you will be able to send a direct message to the author(s) of the paper!
