Novelty and originality of investigations.

4. What are the qualities you look for in an article?
New regularities based on the strict quantitative treatment of the results.

5. Do you have any research funding (NIH or other national funding) now?
Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Program “Molecular and Cell Biology” of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

14. Would you recommend OMICS Group to your friends or colleagues?
As for Biochemistry and Analytical Biochemistry (OMICS), I cannot recommend this journal to my colleagues because journal is not yet included in Web of Science list. The creative activity of scientists in Russia is evaluated taking into account only publications in journals included in Web of Science list. The challenge now is to strive for insertion of Biochemistry and Analytical Biochemistry in Web of Science list..

15. How do you differentiate Biochemistry and Analytical Biochemistry with other journals in the field?
Biochemistry and Analytical Biochemistry deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, which provide the structure of cells and perform many of the functions associated with life. The scope is rather wide. My position, as an editor, is the following. I encourage publications where the authors carry on the strict quantitative analysis of the obtained data and discover new regularities in biochemistry and analytical biochemistry..
