Review articles should be addressed to a broad audience and designed as comprehensive as possible. They should present both a summary of the current status and new insights. Reviews are organized as follows: Abstract, Abbreviations, Table of Content, Main Body of the Manuscript, Conclusion, Acknowledgements and Conflict of Interest. Supplementary material is not recommended, but can be accepted. 

Focused reviews/Perspective articles should highlight a cutting edge research topic. Perspectives present author's opinion on future developments related to a specific topic. Usually, these are invited manuscripts. However, we are also encouraging uninvited submissions. 

Experimental/Original manuscripts should present significant advances within a specific field of research related to the aim of the journal. Articles should be organized as follows: Abstract, Abbreviations, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Conclusion, Acknowledgements and Conflict of Interest. Supplementary material should be reserved only for information that is not critical for understanding of the manuscript. 

Editorials present viewpoints, comment on a specific article previously published in DISCOVERIES or DISCOVERIES REPORTS, or are related to other scientific topics (such as politics of science).  

Discoveries in Images are short highlights of a discovery with 1 figure and several paragraphs, concisely describing the discovery, its importance and impact.

  • March 2017 | PubMed inclusion News!

    Discoveries successfully passed the Scientific Quality Review by NLM-NIH for PubMedCentral and PubMed indexing (March 2017). This is the first and the most important step towards PubMedCentral and PubMed indexing! The second (last) step is the Technical Review, which should be faster and without problems.

  • April 2016 | Faster Peer-Review

    Starting on April 13th 2016, all articles selected for a peer-review will receive the post peer-review decision within 10 days. The initial pre-screening time will remain the same (48h from the submission of the manuscript). This decision will significantly accelerate the publication, with no effect on the quality of the peer-review process.

  • February 2016 | Manuscript submission

    Discoveries is commited to excellence, quality and high editorial standards. We are receiving an increasing number of manuscripts for which the identity of the authors/corresponding author can't be verified. Please NOTE that ALL these articles were and will be immediately REJECTED. Indicating an institutional email address is the easiest way to overcome this problem! Moreover, we do not accept any pressure on our editorial board to accept a manuscript. This results in a prompt rejection of the article.
