The Editors-in-Chief of the International Journal of Knowledge Discovery in Bioinformatics (IJKDB) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, coverage, and guidelines for submission to IJKDB.


The mission of the International Journal of Knowledge Discovery in Bioinformatics (IJKDB) is to increase awareness of interesting and challenging biomedical problems and to inspire new knowledge discovery solutions, which can be translated into further biological and clinical studies. IJKDB is aimed at researchers in the areas of bioinformatics, knowledge discovery, machine learning, and data structure, as well as practitioners in the life sciences industry. In addition to original research papers in bioinformatics, this journal emphasizes software and tools that exploit the knowledge discovery techniques to address biological problems and databases that contain useful biomedical data generated in wet and dry labs. IJKDB encompasses discovery notes that report newly found biological discoveries using computational techniques and includes reviews and tutorials on relevant computational and experimental techniques for translational research and knowledge discovery in life sciences.


Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Bioimage analysis
  • Bioinformatics databases
  • Biological data and text mining algorithms
  • Biological data collection and cleansing
  • Biological data integration
  • Biological data management
  • Biological knowledge discovery
  • Biological knowledge visualization
  • Biological networks (protein interaction, metabolic, transcription factor, signaling, etc.)
  • Biological tools/applications
  • Biostatistics
  • Clinical research informatics
  • Computational evolutionary biology
