The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine (YJBM) will be publishing an issue devoted to the topic of Big Data. We are inviting authors to submit original research articles, reviews, case reports, or perspectives within this field. Specific subtopics include:

  • Genetics and genomics
  • Computational and systems biology
  • Big data in quality improvement and clinical decision making
  • Predictive algorithms and personalized medicine
  • Big data to inform public health and population health
  • Bias and bioethics of big data in biology and medicine

If you are unsure whether your manuscript matches with the issue topic, please reach out to Deputy Editors Conrad Safranek and Ryland Mortlock.

YJBM is a PubMed-indexed, open-access journal whose mission is to provide graduate students and medical students with experience in writing, reviewing, and publishing articles. The journal has been in publication since 1928 and is supported by an Editorial Board made up of both students and faculty members. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by faculty in the field and there is no publication fee. The YJBM has a projected Scopus CiteScore of 5.1 for 2022.

The length of the manuscript can vary depending on the article type. You can find guidelines for authors on our website. As part of YJBMs diversity efforts, we offer double-blind peer review. Reviewer bias (conscious or otherwise) should not affect the science that is published. While we encourage you to submit an anonymized manuscript, we also accept unblinded submissions for single-blind review, where only the reviewer names are kept anonymous.
