Publication: Biointerphases Collections

7th International Symposium on Surfaces and Interfaces of Biomaterials (ISSIB 2019)

Manuscript Submission


Papers presented at ISSIB 2019 shall be submitted for publication in Biointerphases for the Conference Collection: ISSIB 2019. The papers will be peer reviewed.  Accepted papers will publish online in the next open issue of Biointerphases immediately after proof processing, and will also appear grouped into the Collection for ISSIB 2019.

Papers will be reviewed according to criteria set by Biointerphases and must meet Biointerphases standards for both technical content and written English. All manuscripts are reviewed to the same standards as regular Biointerphases submissions.

Submit your manuscripts to Biointerphases, chosen for your specific conference, using the journal’s online manuscript submission system, the Biointerphases Peer X-Press site:

In preparing your article, you should follow the instructions for contributors, which may be found on the Information for Contributors link at

Information for Contributors.

Authors are encouraged to use the templates provided by Biointerphases. The easiest way to prepare your manuscript is to use the available Article Template to delete and replace text as necessary.

Note that acceptance to present at the conference does not guarantee the acceptance of the manuscript. To be published in Biointerphases, the manuscript must:

(1) present original findings, conclusions or analysis that have not been published previously by the authors or others,

(2) be free of errors and ambiguities,

(3) support conclusions with data and analysis,

(4) be written clearly, and

(5) have high impact in its field, which must be within the scope of topics covered by the journal.

It is very IMPORTANT that authors indicate to which Conference/Special Collection the paper is submitted. Online, you will have an opportunity to tell us that your paper is a part of a conference by choosing “Special Topic” under the article type and then the conference name from a list.

Acceptable manuscript file types are MSWord, LaTeX, and PDF. For the initial submission/review process, a single PDF or MSWord file with embedded figures is needed. However, once a paper is accepted, MSWord or TeX file of the text, any tables, and the list of figure captions along with the separate figure files will be required for final production. Use of color in figures is encouraged.

Figures appear in color for free. Prepare illustrations in the final published size, not oversized or undersized.
