Notulae Scientia Biologicae is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal aimed at disseminating significant research and original papers, critical reviews and short reviews on life sciences and medicine, development of new methodologies that can be of interest to a wide audience of scientists in all areas of biological sciences. The journal encourages authors to frame their research questions and discuss their results in terms of the major questions of biology, agriculture, horticulture, forestry, biotechnology and medicine, thereby maximizing the impact, spreading and value of their research. The papers must be of potential interest to a significant number of scientists and, if specific to a local situation, must be relevant to a wide body of knowledge in life and medical sciences. Articles should make a significant contribution to the advancement of knowledge or toward a better understanding of existing biological, agricultural and medical concepts. An international Editorial Board advises the journal. The distribution of the material is encouraged with the condition that the authors and the source (Notulae Scientia Biologicae or abbreviated title Not Sci Biol) are mentioned.
