This is the review of the current state of research in my domain with generalized observations and suggestions for research.
Figure of Journals scope and my research area.
Computational Linguistics: This journal’s scope is quite wide, but it is highly referred in papers that are related to my research.
Knowledge-Based Systems focuses on systems that use knowledge-based techniques to support human decision-making, learning and action.
Bioinformatic: I will focus on the data and text mining part.
- Genome analysis
- Sequence analysis
- Structural Bioinformatics
- Gene Expression
- Genetics and Population Analysis
- Systems Biology
- Data and Text Mining
- Databases and Ontologies
Nucleic Acids Research: Though computational biology is one of its scope, I didn’t find any papers talking about BioNLP in the current volume.
Information Processing & Management: Basic and applied research in information science: use of information; information retrieval (IR); knowledge organization and distribution.
Artificial Intelligence in Medicine: The information system issues seems related to my research application:
- medical knowledge engineering
- knowledge-based and agent-based systems
- computational intelligence in bio- and clinical medicine
- intelligent medical information systems
BMC Bioinformatics: This is the ideal journal. Some papers focus on the BioNLP field. Memo: they didn’t have “introduction” section in each article, but “background”.
Machine Learning Journal: Learning Problems and Learning Methods are very related.
Journal of Machine Learning Research: Learning Problems and Learning Methods are very related.
IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (IEEE/ACM TCBB): Though they anticipate the publications will represent a mixture of fundamental methodological, experimental and implementation issues, and serious application of methods, from the more specific topics of interest, I can find only things like protein analysis, DNA folding, but not NLP issues.
Computer Speech and Language: Algorithms and models for speech recognition and synthesis, is not related to my area. But the natural language processing techniques are helpful.
Journal of Molecular Biology: Computational biology, but not focus on NLP.
Journal of Artificial Intelligence: General journal, suitable for any topics in AI.
