Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ) is an open access, peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to championing excellence in molecular study design, measurement, data analysis and reporting. Its focus is on the application of qualitative and quantitative molecular methodologies to all areas of clinical and life sciences. The journal has two main aims:
BDQ was established by a group of scientists based on their experience developing and publishing the Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time (and Digital) PCR Experiments (the MIQE and digital MIQE guidelines). The deliberately broad scope of the journal covers clinical areas such as cancer, epigenetics, metagenomics, and infectious diseases as well non clinical subjects including environmental, microbiology and food science. BDQ revolves around the common theme of promoting excellence in molecular measurement and its data analysis. It will serve as a repository for sharing key findings across what may otherwise be disparate specialties.
BDQ is distinguished by its three highly respected founding editors and molecular methodology pioneers Carl Wittwer, Michael W. Pfaffl and Ron Cook, and an international editorial board comprised of experienced scientists with broad expert interest.
BDQ is published quarterly and includes:
In conjunction to scientific meetings in the field special extra issues can be released.
All submitted manuscripts must present original contributions and contain no data that have been published elsewhere. Please note that BDQ operates with a so-called double blind peer-review policy which means that both the author and the reviewer remain anonymous to each other to avoid reviewer bias.
The journal has an international audience and we particularly welcome submissions from younger scholars and researchers and those from developing countries.
