Abstract:

Protein and Peptide Letters has published many papers dealing with computational studies of proteins and peptides. We have recently established a new editorial policy that we will only consider manuscripts that feature a combination of computational work and experimental studies that show verification of the predictions made from computational work. For example, if bioinformatics studies are used to predict that a new protein will have a particular structure, additional work, perhaps from a collaborating laboratory, showing that the protein has some features such as a CD spectrum that agree with the prediction would be required. It is our feeling that the proliferation of computational studies with no relation to experimental work is not moving the field forward. Another point for potential authors consideration is that many manuscripts are submitted from authors in one country with a list of potential referees from a narrow geographical area, typically very near the authors home institution. In order to feature the best work in Protein and Peptide Letters, we strongly encourage authors to identify leaders in the field from around the globe to suggest as potential referees. The opinions of such individuals will help the authors to improve their manuscripts and will help us to improve the journal. Ben
