Instructions for Authors

Aims and scope

SCIENCE CHINA Life Sciences (Sci China Life Sci) is a journal supervised by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, co-sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Natural Science Foundation of China, and in collaboration with Chinese Biological Investigators Society. It is published monthly in English by Science China Press and Springer.

The journal is indexed/abstracted in SCI, PubMed, MEDLINE, BIOSIS, CA, etc.

Sci China Life Sci publishes authoritative reviews, high-quality original research papers, CUSBEA article series, insight, letter to the editor, research highlight, and news and views. It covers a wide range of areas in life sciences including biology, medicine, and agriculture and ecology.

Review articles insightfully summarize the progress of a particular topic.

Research Paper reports original observations and discoveries of general interest in life sciences.

CUSBEA Article Series publishes papers from China-US Biochemistry Examination and Application fellows.

Insight reviews significant research achievements in life sciences (about 1500 words with one figure or table and no more than ten references).

Letter to the Editor reports novel findings that have an immediate major impact on current life sciences research (about 1000 words with one figure or table and no more than five references).

Research Highlight discusses one or more recently published research articles that are interesting enough to warrant further comment (about 1000 words with one figure or table and no more than five references).

News and Views covers original viewpoints about major scientific discoveries, research policies and other scientific events (about 1000 words with one figure or table and no more than five references).

All papers appearing in this journal are strictly peer-reviewed before publication. Contributions are invited from researchers all over the world.

Submission of manuscripts

All submitted manuscripts are not assumed to be published previously or concurrently submitted for publication elsewhere.

Manuscripts should be prepared for submission in docx or doc format (Word), single-columned, A4 size, 12 pt, single spaced, with tables inserted in the text and figures provided in the original editable form.

Visit the website life.scichina.com, click the button “Submission & Review”, and use ScholarOne Manuscript System.

For a new user, please create an account and submit a manuscript following the guidance. An informative cover letter briefly describing the major discoveries of your work is required.

The authors should recommend 3-5 qualified reviewers and may request the exclusion of particular reviewers.

Review policy

All the submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by expert referees selected by the editorial board. The final decision on a manuscript will be made by the editorial board based on the referees’ comments. The entire review process usually takes 40 days, and the editorial office will inform the author of the decision as soon as the process is completed.

Authorship

Authorship should be limited to those who have contributed substantially to the work. Submission of a manuscript is taken to imply that all the named authors are aware that they are listed as co-authors, and they have seen and agreed to the submitted version. The corresponding author is the one who should take the major responsibility to ensure that the submitted manuscripts are properly prepared in all aspects.

Copyright

A completed form assigning copyright to Science China Press must be returned to the SCIENCE CHINA Life Sciences office when the paper is accepted for publication. The copyright covers the exclusive right to reproduce and distribute the article (in various languages), including offprints and reprints, translations, photographic reproductions, microform, electronic form (offline, online) or other reproductions of similar nature. The Copyright Transfer Statement is available at life.scichina.com.

Research data policy

The journal encourages authors, where possible and applicable, to deposit data that support the findings of their research in a public repository. Authors and editors who do not have a preferred repository should consult Springer Nature’s list of repositories and research data policy.

List of Repositories

(http://www.springernature.com/gp/group/data-policy/repositories)

Research Data Policy

(http://www.springernature.com/gp/group/data-policy/faq) General repositories-for all types of research data-such as Figshare and Dryad may also be used. Datasets that are assigned digital object identifiers (DOIs) by a data repository may be cited in the reference list. Data citations should include the minimum information recommended by DataCite: authors, title, publisher (repository name), identifier.

DataCite (https://www.datacite.org/)

Springer Nature provides a research data policy support service for authors and editors, which can be contacted at researchdata@springernature.com.

This service provides advice on research data policy compliance and on finding research data repositories. It is independent of journal, book and conference proceedings editorial offices and does not advise on specific manuscripts.

Ethical responsibilities of authors

Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which could damage the trust in the journal and ultimately the entire scientific endeavor, and follow the COPE guidelines on how to deal with potential acts of misconduct.

Preparation for publication

After typesetting, the page proof is usually sent as an email attachment to the corresponding author. The proof, together with any possible minor corrections, must be returned to the managing editor within 48 hours. Failure to do this might result in a delay in the final publication of the paper.

Page charges and offprints

Page charges are 300 RMB (US$50) for each page in black and white and 8002000 RMB (US$130350) for each color page, varying with the total number of color pages (visit life.scichina.com for details). An invoice for the charge will be sent to the corresponding author by the Editorial Office. Authors will be presented one sample copy. If offprints and more sample copies are required, please contact the managing editor and pay the extra fee.

Authors writing review manuscripts are respectfully requested to limit article length to approximately 10 printed pages, including a few illustrative figures and tables as relevant.

Manuscripts of full research articles should be well organized, with concise language and avoiding redundant tables and figures. Authors are advised to use standard international nomenclature, express all measurements in the International System of Units.

For a typical Research Paper, manuscripts should be divided into the following sections: Title page; Abstract; Introduction; Results; Discussion; Materials and methods; Compliance and ethics; Acknowledgements; References; Figure legends; Figures; Tables.

Title Page

The title should be concise and informative, and usually limited to no more than 20 words.

Please provide the names of the authors, their affiliations and addresses (postcode included), e-mail addresses, and telephone number of the corresponding author.

Abstract

It should be a single paragraph, succinctly and clearly describing the major findings reported in the manuscript, and comprehensible to readers who did not read the paper. Abbreviations and specialized terms should be avoided. Reference citations within the abstract are not permitted.

A list of 3-8 keywords reflecting the theme of the manuscript should be provided.

Introduction

It should briefly introduce the relevant background of the research conducted (not a comprehensive review of the specific field), purpose of the study reported, and provide a brief summary of the major findings.

Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter. Please do not use subheadings in the introduction.

Results

Major observations and conclusions of the reported study should be clearly and logically described here. Informative subheadings should be used in this section. Please use different font sizes to indicate headings and subheadings without numbering.
