Biotechnology for Biofuels
Publisher: BioMed Central
Biotechnology for Biofuels is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal
featuring high-quality studies describing technological and operational
advances in the production of biofuels from biomass.
Biotechnology for Biofuels will emphasize understanding and advancing the
application of biotechnology and synergistic operations to improve plants
and biological conversion systems for the production of fuels from
lignocellulosic biomass and any related economic, environmental and policy
Biotechnology for Biofuels will focus on the following areas:
* Development of plants for biofuels production
* Plant deconstruction
* Pretreatment and fractionation
* Enzyme production and enzymatic conversion
* Fermentation and bioconversion
* Integrated systems
* Process design and economics
* Life cycle studies
Biotechnology for Biofuels considers the following types of articles:
* Research: reports of data from original research. These articles will form
the major content of the journal.
* Reviews: comprehensive, authoritative, descriptions of any subject within
the scope of the journal.
* Commentaries: short, focused and opinionated articles on any subject
within the journal's scope. These articles are usually related to a
contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written
by opinion leaders invited by the Editorial Board.
* Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or
procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a
better version of an existing method. Methodology articles will only be
accepted for publication if they represent a significant advance in the
* Editorials: short articles written by members of the Editorial Board
describing policy issues relevant to the journal.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to Biotechnology for Biofuels
using the online submission system.
