In 20th century, statistical techniques have been greatly evolved to widen the scope and application of Biostatistics to various fields. Biostatistics refers to application of statistical concepts to the associated fields of biology like medicine, clinical sciences, life sciences, pharma, agriculture and forestry. The uses of biostatistics include designing experiments, collection of data, analyzing data and generating summary reports, and data interpretation to help draw conclusions. As an example, in clinical industry, Biostatistics is employed to analyze and interpret data collected from clinical trials to test the efficacy and safety of novel medicines or diagnosis/treatment methods.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
The Journal of Computer Science & Systems Biology includes a wide range of fields in its discipline to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution in the form of review, research, mini-review, short communication etc towards the journal and the editorial office promises a peer review process for the submitted manuscripts for quality publishing.
