LSMB’s and Biome Scientia Journal’s stand on this is that science reporting should be objective, accurate and validated.

If your manuscript has only one experiment to explain your objective and you have demonstrated it scientifically and sufficiently well, then it should be shared to a greater audience. In other words, it should be published!

We are unable to guarantee the time-frame for this process. However, it generally takes about 1 - 3 months for a paper to go through submission, review, responding to reviewers, acceptance, copy-editing and proof preparation until it can be published online.
