Presubmission Inquiries
Bio-protocol publishes detailed, step-by-step versions of protocols validated by their use in a published or preprint research article. Evidence that the protocol is robust and reproducible can also be provided by including relevant data in the validation section of the submitted protocol. See Bio-protocol author guidelines for more information about expectations for content and formatting of manuscripts submitted to Bio-protocol.

Please fill out the following fields to submit a presubmission inquiry. Our Editorial Team will review the provided information and respond to your request within five working days of submission. The system will not allow you to submit a protocol without an accepted inquiry. There are no fees for submitting a presubmission inquiry.

All information submitted with the form is treated as confidential by the Bio-protocol team.

Bio-protocol charges an Article Processing Charge (APC) of $1200 for publication of accepted protocol manuscripts. Fee waivers are available upon request. See "Introducing Article Processing Charges to Create a Sustainable Future" for more information and go to for details on our APC and waiver policy.
