Ninth Journal Will Submit Interaction Data to BIND Ahead of Publication

NEW YORK, July 18 (GenomeWeb News) - The Journal of Biomolecular Screening will submit molecular interaction data to the Biomolecular Interaction Network Database prior to publication, becoming the ninth journal to take this step, the Blueprint Initiative, which maintains BIND, said last week.

 

Under the agreement with the journal's publisher, SAGE Publications, data from pre-publication manuscripts will be submitted to BIND and BIND record identifiers will be published in the final articles.

 

The Journal of Biomolecular Screening is the ninth journal to require pre-publication data to be submitted to BIND. The others include Science, Nature Cell Biology, and Immunology.
