  • A forum in print and online for publishing sequence-specific resonance assignments for proteins and nucleic acids
  • These data are deposited into a public database at BioMagResBank
  • Assignment Notes are published in biannual printed editions in June and December

Biomolecular NMR Assignments provides a forum for publishing sequence-specific resonance assignments for proteins and nucleic acids as Assignment Notes. Chemical shifts for NMR-active nuclei in macromolecules contain detailed information on molecular conformation and properties.

Publication of resonance assignments in Biomolecular NMR Assignments ensures that these data are deposited into a public database at BioMagResBank (BMRB; http://www.bmrb.wisc.edu/), where they are available to other researchers. Coverage includes proteins and nucleic acids; Assignment Notes are processed for rapid online publication and are published in biannual online editions in June and December.

Details Concerning the Submission and Publication Procedures:
- No Page Charges
- No Fees for Online Color Images
Optional Color Images in Print – Euro 950,-
- Optional Open Access Publication Fee (APC) – USD 3000,- / Euro 2200,-

    Biomolecular NMR Assignments provides a forum for publishing sequence-specific resonance assignments for proteins and nucleic acids as Assignment Notes. Chemical shifts for NMR-active nuclei in macromolecules contain detailed information on molecular conformation and properties.

    Publication of resonance assignments in Biomolecular NMR Assignments ensures that these data are deposited into a public database at BioMagResBank (BMRB; http://www.bmrb.wisc.edu/), where they are available to other researchers.

    Assignment Notes are processed for rapid online publication and are published in biannual printed editions in June and December.

    Proteins

    An Assignment Note generally will be considered for a protein of at least 100 amino acid residues in size based on data collected under non-denaturating conditions for the active form of the protein. Residues added in the cloning process that are not part of the native sequence are not to be included in the residue count, and the size of a homo-oligomeric protein is evaluated on the basis of its monomer chain length.

    An Assignment Note for a cooperatively folded protein of less than 100 amino acid residues or of unfolded/non-native states may be considered, provided that the authors present a convincing reason for publication of the data in the cover letter accompanying submission. Assignment Notes documenting assignments of proteins by solid-state NMR spectroscopy are encouraged: use of solid-state NMR is an acceptable justification for assignments of cooperatively folded proteins of less than 100 residues.

    Complete backbone assignments and complete or nearly complete side chain assignments are required. Assignments for only the polypeptide backbone in large proteins may be considered, provided that the authors present a convincing reason for publication of the data in the cover letter accompanying submission.

    Nucleic Acids

    An Assignment Note generally will be considered for a nucleic acid molecule of at least 10 nucleotides; however, Assignment Notes for regular duplex B-form DNA and A-form RNA usually are not acceptable. Authors should describe in the cover letter accompanying submission the significance of the nucleic acid molecule justifying publication of an Assignment Note.

    Complete or nearly complete base and sugar assignments are required. More limited assignments, especially in large nucleic acid molecules may be considered, provided that the authors present a convincing reason for publication of the data in the cover letter accompanying submission.

    Assignment Data - BioMagResBank

    The assignment data must be deposited in the BioMagResBank (http://www.bmrb.wisc.edu/) and manuscript submission must be accompanied by the BMRB entry-processing letter together with the author's response to any issue that may have been raised by the BMRB. The processing letter is typically provided by the BMRB within 10 days of submission, providing that authors indicate Biomolecular NMR Assignments as the journal citation.

    The Editors encourage authors of assignment data that do not qualify for publication as an Assignment Note to submit the assignments to the BMRB nonetheless and, include a description of the assignment data, if applicable, in a manuscript describing the project for which the assignments were used.

    For Authors

    Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as – tacitly or explicitly – by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

    Author warrants (i) that he/she is the sole owner or has been authorized by any additional copyright owner to assign the right, (ii) that the article does not infringe any third party rights and no license from or payments to a third party is required to publish the article and (iii) that the article has not been previously published or licensed. The author signs for and accepts responsibility for releasing this material on behalf of any and all co-authors. Transfer of copyright to Springer (respective to owner if other than Springer) becomes effective if and when a Copyright Transfer Statement is signed or transferred electronically by the corresponding author. After submission of the Copyright Transfer Statement signed by the corresponding author, changes of authorship or in the order of the authors listed will not be accepted by Springer.

    The copyright to this article, including any graphic elements therein (e.g. illustrations, charts, moving images), is assigned for good and valuable consideration to Springer effective if and when the article is accepted for publication and to the extent assignable if assignability is restricted for by applicable law or regulations (e.g. for U.S. government or crown employees).

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
