The Open Journal System web site for Gravitational and Space Biology is active, and we continue to encourage manuscript submissions of all kinds. The instructions to authors can be found on the website, and in the front-matter of the September 2011 issue.
Manuscripts can be submitted any time through the website, http://GravitationalAndSpaceBiology.org, and will be published in the order of their completion through the peer review and author revision process. Manuscripts for the Fall 2012 issue are in various stages of the submission and review, However, depending on the time it takes to navigate the peer review system, manuscripts submitted as late as August 31st can still make it into the Fall issue. So please do not hesitate if you have a paper of interest you would like to submit!
Submission is open to all (members and non-members alike), and we are actively encouraging papers in the fields of gravitational and space biology, astrobiology, analog environment research, advanced life support (ALS), as well as biophysics, radiation biology, engineering, and hardware development relevant to these arenas. The categories of papers include Short Communication, Methods, Research, and Review. In addition, we are also opening a new category: Hypothesis. Guidelines for each category can be found in the Instructions to Authors, and you may feel free to contact any of the members of the Editorial team for guidance at any time.
The value of the journal to ASGSR, and to the scientific community, depends heavily on the quality and number of articles submitted. We look forward to receiving many high-quality papers that strongly reflect the exciting research of our members. We are the face of ASGSR.
As always, do not hesitate to e-mail with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
