Systems biology emphasizes on biological components such as molecules, cells, organisms or species. To study them, certain techniques like genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, computational modelling and other mathematical models are employed. The Systems Biology mainly focuses on complex interactions in a living cell and characterizes the principles within a biological system or a human cell.
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 the quality of publishing.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel "roads" towards open access: Open Access articles and self-archiving. Open Access articles are immediately, freely available on their Web site, a model mostly funded by charges paid by the author (usually through a research grant). The alternative for a researcher is self-archiving (i.e., to publish in a traditional journal, where only subscribers have immediate access, but to make the article available on their personal and/or institutional Web sites (including so-called repositories or archives)), which is a practice allowed by many scholarly journals.
Open Access raises practical and policy questions for scholars, publishers, funders, and policymakers alike, including what the return on investment is when paying an article processing fee to publish in an Open Access articles, or whether investments into institutional repositories should be made and whether self-archiving should be made mandatory, as contemplated by some funders.
