1. An order of the direction and publication of manuscripts in the reviewed edition

1.1. The journal "Journal Biomed" publishes experimental and educational-methodological scientific works that have not been previously published in other publications, as well as reviews at the suggestion of the editorial board. Articles are published on biological modeling, ensuring representativeness, reproducibility and extrapolation to humans of data obtained in biomedical experiments on animals. Priority is given to articles on the development and implementation of new biomedical methods and technologies. There are published works on the design and implementation into laboratory practice of new types of animal models (transgenic, knockout) that are valuable for biomedical research, as well as their genetic, epigenetic, microbiological standardization in accordance with the recommendations of GLP, GMP, GCP and Russian standards. Attention is paid to scientific works devoted to experimental and sports pharmacology, pharmaceuticals, restorative medicine and biomedical aspects of clinical pharmacology.

1.2. Journal rubrication:

  • Review - a problematic article containing the author's analysis of the results of scientific and methodological research on topical biomedical topics (the maximum volume of the manuscript – up to 12 p., the maximum number of exiles – up to 35).
  • Original article - a work reflecting the results of completed research (up to 10 p., up to 25 references).
