“Open access publisher BioMed Central, US, has announced the launch of a new open access journal — BioData Mining. Dr Jesus Aguilar-Ruiz of the Pablo De Olavide University and Dr Jason H. Moore of the Dartmouth Medical School will serve as Editors-in-Chief of the journal. They will be supported by an expert Editorial Board.
BioData Mining publishes original articles on all aspects of data mining applied to high-dimensional biological and biomedical data, focusing on computational aspects of knowledge discovery from large-scale genetic, transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data. As well as being open access, the journal also operates an open peer review process, which the editors hope will foster constructive reviews and therefore enrich the criticism.
All BioData Mining articles are archived in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine’s full-text repository of life science literature, and also in repositories at the University of Potsdam in Germany, at INIST in France and in e-Depot, the National Library of the Netherlands’ digital archive of all electronic publications. The journal is also participating in the British Library’s e-journals pilot project, and plans to deposit copies of all articles with the British Library.”
