Submit your manuscript

Submissions can be made using the link above which will take you to our online submissions system. Additional information for authors, including how to prepare your manuscript for submission and the types of articles that can be published in Communications Biology, can be found at the pages listed in the menu. 

We encourage authors to incorporate the manuscript text and figures into a single PDF or Microsoft Word file. Suitably high resolution figures may be inserted within the text at appropriate positions (generally preferred by reviewers) or grouped at the end. Each figure legend should be presented on the same page as its figure. We can accept LaTeX files at the acceptance stage, but before then please supply compiled PDFs.
