The journal covers all the fields of environmental sciences, connected to life sciences, geology, physics, chemistry, economics, policies or legislation (both theoretical and applied issues).

AES Bioflux is a good opportunity for you to publish your original research, review, or short communication, both printed and online, color, open access. Our policy allows the author(s) to hold the copyright without restrictions. This is an open-access journal distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License CC-BY, which permits unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author and source are credited.

AES Bioflux is an international peer-reviewed journal. Each published article was independently seen before by two Scientific Reviewers and at least one lingvist. Peer-review policy in AES Bioflux: double blind peer-review. The editors use a soft for screening the plagiarism. Acceptance rate: about 50%. Electronic submission is required. 

Because many authors withdrew their manuscript in final form just before the payment of the publication fee, our policy has changed (20 February 2019). The publication fee was replaced by a processing fee (250 USD), which is paid after a preliminary evaluation (not at the end). Our evaluation has two steps. 1)A preliminary evaluation by the editor (the author gets a preliminary acceptance or rejection); 2)An external double blind peer-review (at this point the author gets a final decision: acceptance or rejection). Please note that if the manuscript will not be published, the author or his/her institution gets the money back (except the cases of poor feedback from authors or withdrawal/rejection due to multiple submissions). We inform the authors about our final decision (acceptance or rejection) in 3-8 weeks after their submission. The average overall time from submission of the manuscript to publication is 10 weeks. Faster processing involves a tax of priority (50 USD). 

Manuscript processing fee: 250 USD (or equivalent in EURO or RON); 

Manuscript processing fee with priority: 300 USD (or equivalent in EURO or RON); 

Publication fee: 0 USD.  

The journal has a waiver policy for developing country authors (only for cases of very good quality manuscripts). When the manuscript's first author is a member of the Editorial Board Expanded (AES Bioflux), there is no processing fee. Please attach a scanned payment document and email to

Statement of human and animal rights

When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (5). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals"- February 2006 – cited by Pubmed, Medline database).

Statement of informed consent

Patients have a right to privacy that should not be infringed without informed consent. Identifying information, including patients' names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that a patient who is identifiable be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should identify individuals who provide writing assistance and disclose the funding source for this assistance. Identifying details should be omitted if they are not essential. Complete anonymity is difficult to achieve, however, and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals"- February 2006 – cited by Pubmed, Medline database).

Conflict-of-interest statement

Public trust in the peer review process and the credibility of published articles depend in part on how well conflict of interest is handled during writing, peer review, and editorial decision making. Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author's institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties). These relationships vary from those with negligible potential to those with great potential to influence judgment, and not all relationships represent true conflict of interest. The potential for conflict of interest can exist whether or not an individual believes that the relationship affects his or her scientific judgment. Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and of science itself (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals"- February 2006 – cited by Pubmed, Medline database). However, conflicts can occur for other reasons, such as personal relationships, academic competition or intellectual passion, and the Chief Editor will do his best to avoid them, using specific policies in the process of peer-review.
