Aim and Scope

Biochemia Medica is the official peer-reviewed journal of the Croatian Society of Medical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine published in print (three times per year) and electronically (six times per year), according to the schedule available on the Journal website. The journal is intended for all professionals who share the interest in clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine. Manuscripts are published in English language. All submitted manuscripts are given equal consideration, irrespective of the country they originate from, as long as the following main criteria are met:

• A manuscript is within the scope of the Journal

• A manuscript is written and prepared according to the Journal’s Instructions for authors.

Significant non-compliance with the Journal’s Instructions for authors increases the probability of desk rejection.

The following topics fit into the scope of the Journal: clinical chemistry, hematology and hemostasis, molecular diagnostics, immunology, analytical toxicology, clinical laboratory pharmacology and endocrinology. Development and clinical evaluation of methods and technologies applicable to clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine are welcome as well as are contributions focusing on laboratory organization, automation, quality and safety in laboratory medicine, harmonization and standardization, reference methods and values. On a regular basis, the Journal also publishes preanalytical case reports (Preanalytical mysteries), articles dealing with applied biostatistics (Lessons in biostatistics) and research integrity (Research integrity corner). Genetic association studies, studies on animal models and/or cell cultures are not in the scope of the Biochemia Medica journal.

Authors are invited to contact the Editorial Board if in doubt about any aspect of scope, format, or content of a proposed contribution.
