학술지 소개

BioChip Journal (BioChip J) is owned and published by the Korean BioChip Society. It is published four times a year in printed and electronic versions. Its editorial policies are the responsibility of the editor, the associate editors, and the editorial board under the general authority of the Publications Committee and the Council.

Scope of Journal

BioChip J publishes original research and reviews in all areas of the biochip technology in the following disciplines, including protein chip, DNA chip, cell chip, lab-on-a-chip, bio-MEMS, biosensor, micro/nano mechanics, microfluidics, high-throughput screening technology, medical science, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring and micro/nanotechnology. The Journal is committed to rapid peer review to ensure the publication of highest quality original research and timely news and review articles.

Types of papers

Two types of papers may be submitted, full-length papers and minireviews. Authors are urged to keep the length of papers below eight printed pages (24 typed pages of manuscript in double spacing including figures and tables). In case of minireviews, invitation by the editor is only applicable. Language of paper: All manuscripts should be written in English. Authors whose first language is not English are requested to have their manuscripts checked carefully for linguistic correctness before submission. All manuscripts submitted for publication will be screened for English by the professional English editor in the Korean BioChip Society.

Publication charges

Authors will be assessed USD $50.00 (KRW 50,000) for each page with all published manuscripts.

Color charges

Authors will be assessed USD $150.00 (KRW150,000) for each page with color figure (s). Color figures can generally be reproduced in acceptable quality in black and white if authors are unwilling or unable to pay for color charges.


As a condition of publication, all authors must transfer copyright to the Korean BioChip Society. Authors should submit Copyright Transfer Agreement at the time of paper submission. Material transfer: Authors of papers published in BioChip J are obligated to honor any reasonable request by qualified investigators for unique propagative materials, such as cell lines, proteins and DNA clones, that are described in the paper. Review protocol: All manuscripts submitted to BioChip J are reviewed critically, and it is the responsibility of the editor, the associate editors, and the editorial board to determine their suitability for publication. After receipt of a manuscript by the editor, it is sent to an associate editor who usually assigns it to a member of the editorial board. The board member then makes a definitive recommendation for acceptance, revision, or declination based on the scientific merit and technical quality of the studies reported. Referees may be consulted when additional expertise is required. All board members and referees who review a manuscript remain unknown to the authors. Every manuscript is treated by more than two reviewers as a privileged communication.

Manuscript submission

All submitted manuscript should contain original research that has not been published previously and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Submit a digital file including high quality graphics prepared in appropriate formats. A letter must be included indicating the address, telephone and fax numbers, and E-mail address of the corresponding author. Microsoft Word is preferred, although other formats are generally acceptable. Manuscript and other materials will not be returned unless specifically requested.
