Scope Mini-Reviews are short reviews critically summarizing the current state of and providing perspectives on biotechnological processes, products, microbial genomes, methods and equipment. Papers should deal with the following aspects of applied microbiology and biotechnology: Biotechnological products and process engineering Established and in pipe technologies of biotechnological processes using prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells or enzymes and other proteins for production, conversion, degradation and detection of substances including bioreactor design. Biotechnologically relevant enzymes and proteins Characterization of hitherto undescribed, biotechnologically relevant enzymes and proteins or of known proteins with novel properties and purification of proteins on a technical scale. Bioenergy and biofuels Biotechnological processes for production of fuels, combustible chemicals and other forms of energy. Applied genetics and molecular biotechnology New vectors and methods for genetic transformation and all aspects of strain improvement employing recombinant DNA technology including metabolic engineering and enzyme engineering. Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics Characterization and analyses of genomes, transcriptomes and proteomes. Applied microbial and cell physiology Physiological studies on biosynthesis, catabolism and biotransformation of biotechnologically relevant compounds. Environmental biotechnology All aspects of environmental processes using microorganisms and biodegradation of hazardous chemicals. Methods and protocols Novel methods and techniques or significant modifications of already described methods or new combinations of methods yielding significant improvements. Their novelty and reliability must be concisely presented.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
