Call for Methods and Data Submissions

The IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological, and Multi-Scale Communications is actively soliciting submissions for our “Methods and Data” article type. 

“Methods and Data” papers allow authors to submit manuscripts that include experimental protocols, data sets, and data analysis methods. These manuscripts should encourage growth in the use of experimental methods and the use and analysis of established data sets.

All submissions must be based on high-quality research that has already been published or accepted in a peer-reviewed venue, either by the same authors or by another group, and this must be clearly indicated. Thus, a “Methods and Data” submission does not need to verify the underlying research. Instead, a submission should focus on the description of the experimental setup and the value of the provided data set.

For additional details on how to submit a “Methods and Data” paper, please read our Information for Authors. When submitting, please select the “Transactions Methods Submissions” manuscript type on the ScholarOne submission portal.

As a sample submission, please refer to the published “Methods and Data” papers:



For any questions, please contact our “Methods and Data” editors:

Prof. Adam Noel (adam.noel@warwick.ac.uk)
Prof. Werner Haselmayr (werner.haselmayr@jku.at)

Looking forward to your submissions!
