It is a pleasure to write this Editor's Note at the beginning of the third year of the publication of the IEEE/ACM Trans-actions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. The last year saw the publication of 30 articles in 400 pages, which was an increase of 46 percent over the first year of publication. This growth is the result of tremendous cooperation and hard work on the part of authors, reviewers, associate editors, and staff. I thank every one of you for making that possible.
During this last year, we recieved roughly 152 submissions, and presently have about 60 of those under review. In addi-tion to our regular papers, we published a special issue on Machine Learning in Computational Biology and Bioinformat-ics. We are currently working on a special issue on the best papers from the WABI 2005 conference (Workshop on Algo-rithms in Bioinformatics) and a special issue on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The papers that we have published have established TCBB as a venue for the highest quality research in a broad range of topics in computational biology and bioinformatics.
A goal for the future is to increase the number of issues published per year and to attract more submissions from the biology community. We have applied to be indexed in MEDLINE and expect that our application will be approved and will lead to more submissions from biologists.
Again, I want to thank all the authors, reviewers, associate editors, and staff who have worked so hard to establish TCBB and I look forward to continued growth and success of TCBB in our third year of publication.
