Aims & Scope

The Innovation Life is a sister journal of The Innovation. It will be an Open Access journal, aiming to publish the first issue in June 2023. The Innovation Life is an international journal publishes innovative, rigorous and cutting-edge progress in Life science, especially interdisciplinary research achievements. We recognize that techniques from genetic, molecular and cell biology, and functional genomics through to modelling and system-based approaches will be applied across the whole spectrum of life science.

The Innovation Life welcomes submissions from all fields of Life science and from any source, including but not limited to:

1. Biotechnology and bioengineering
2. Biochemistry and molecular biology
3. Biomedicines
4. Botany
5. Cell and developmental biology
6. Ecology and environmental science
7. Genetics and bioinformatics
8. Immunology
9. Microbiology
10. Neuroscience and psychology
11. Zoology

Inaugural Words

The Innovation Life: An international journal of life sciences

Our planet thrives because of life. Many disciplines have been created to better understand the world around us. The discipline of life sciences has been an important driving force for the progress of human civilization and will play an even greater role in the future. Life sciences aim to reveal the laws of life activities and unveil the essence of life through studying the phenomenon of life, including the occurrence, development, and extinction of all organisms, the relationship among them, and their responses to the environment. Scientists continue to deepen our understanding of the phenomeon of life, from the macroscopic to the microscopic, from the individual to the molecular. On the macro level, human social relations, ecology, climate and environment, conservation biology, life processes, and the structure of tissues, organs and systems are being revealed. On the micro level, modern life technologies enable us to have a better understanding of cells, organelles, and biomacromolecules, and the relationships between their structure and function.

Throughout history, human beings have never stopped their relentless exploration of life science. Thousands of years ago, Egyptians began to make mummies, and the Book of Songs from ancient China gave vivid descriptions of hundreds of animals and plants, all of which shine with our ancestors' love for life. In the mid-17th century, scientists invented microscopes to "see" cells, opening the door to modern life science research. Over the centuries, life science research has evolved considerably. Earlier, research was performed in individual laboratories, focusing on specific organisms and reactions in test tubes. Now, more research relies increasingly on collaorations, giant equipment, big data computing, large scientific projects, and even multidisciplinary convergence. High-throughput sequencers, super-resolution microscopes, and ultra-high field strength NMR devices are creating new research paradigms in different areas of life sciences.

Innovation is a great challenge but also oppotunity for every researcher in life sciences. We are moving from "understanding life" to "engineering life". Future researchers in life sciences need to bring together the frontiers in mathematics, physics, chemistry, materials, and computer science, in order to facilitate the continued development of life sciences and to generate next-generation fundamental theories and technologies.

To address the challenges in life science, we are launching a new journal entitled "The Innovation Life", dedicated to publishing innovative, rigorous, and cutting-edge advances in life sciences, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary achievements. We welcome manuscripts from all areas of the life sciences. The Innovation Life will witness more and more exciting discoveries that lead the transformation in life sciences.

Let' s get together to see the unseen and change the unchanged.


For Authors

All submissions are initially evaluated in depth by the scientific editors. Papers that do not conform to the general criteria for publication will be returned to the authors without detailed review. Otherwise, manuscripts will be sent to at least two reviewers who have agreed in advance to assess the paper rapidly. The editors will make every effort to reach decisions on these papers within 3 weeks of the submission date. If revisions are a condition of publication, generally 4 weeks are allowed for revisions, and only one revised version of the paper is considered. Evaluations of conceptual advance and significance are made on the basis of the literature available on the day of final decision, not the day of submission. Accepted papers will be published online ahead of the issue as soon as possible and will appear in an issue within 2 months of acceptance. Any major changes after acceptance are subject to review and may delay publication.

Fast-Track Review
If circumstances so warrant, authors may request a fast-track review of a paper in the cover letter. At the editor’s discretion, a fast-track review will be undertaken to expedite manuscripts that deserve rapid review and publication. Such review would be completed in less than 1 week.


Editorial Policies
Manuscripts are considered with the understanding that no part of the work has been published previously in print or electronic format and that the paper is not under consideration by another publication or electronic medium. All in-press or submitted works pertinent to the manuscript under consideration(including those cited in the manuscript under consideration) must accompany the submission. Related manuscripts that have been submitted elsewhere during the period of revision must accompany revised manuscripts. Failure to provide copies of related manuscripts under consideration elsewhere may delay the review process and may be grounds for rejection.
