Currently more than 50 international biochemistry journals recommend their authors to refer to the STRENDA Guidelines when reporting enzymology data.

In addition, STRENDA DB is increasingly integrated into the publication practices of the community and into the publication processes of the journals.

See below the growing list of journals and publishers that recommend STRENDA DB a validation tool and repository for depositing functional enzyme data.

The following journals have adopted the STRENDA Guidelines:

  • ACS Catalysis
  • Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy
  • Applied and Environmental Microbiology
  • Archives in Biochemistry and Biophysics
  • Biochemical Journal
  • Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications
  • Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (alle nine sections)
  • Biochemistry
  • Biophysical Chemistry
  • Biophysical Journal
  • Biotechnology & Bioengineering
  • Clinical and Vaccine Immunology
  • Enzyme Engineering
  • FEBS Journal
  • Free Radical Research
  • Genome Announcements
  • Infection and Immunity
  • Journal of Clinical Microbiology
  • Journal of the American Chemical Society
  • mBio
  • Molecular and Cellular Biology
  • Molecular Catalysis
  • mSphere
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA
  • The Journal of Bacteriology
  • The Journal of Biological Chemistry
  • The Journal of Virology
  • Trends in Biotechnology
  • Frontiers journals (e.g., Bacteriology, Bioengineering and Biotechnology, Catalysis, Chemical Biology,...)

The nine sections of Biochimica et Biophysica Acta are:

  • BBA - Bioenergetics
  • BBA - Biomembranes
  • BBA - Gene Regulatory Mechanisms
  • BBA - General Subjects
  • BBA - Molecular Basis of Disease
  • BBA - Molecular Cell Research
  • BBA - Molecular and Cell Biology of Lipids
  • BBA - Proteins and Proteomics
  • BBA - Reviews on Cancer

Since 2008, the STRENDA Guidelines have been included in the MIBBI portal (“Minimum Information for Biological and Biomedical Investigations”). Later on, MIBBI became part of the project, a web portal that collects inter-related data standards, databases, and policies in the life, environmental and biomedical sciences. provides the community with a portal for 'minimum information' checklists to support authors, reviewers and editors in order to improve the quality of the published scientific data. The following publishers, journals and initiatives recommend the authors to use the normative checklists from the FAIRsharing portal when publishing their research results.


  • BioMedCentral (e.g. BMC Biochemistry, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Biological Research, BMC Biology, BMC Biotechnology, BMC Cell Biology, BMC Systems Biology, ...)
  • PLoS (e.g. PLoS One, PLoS Biology, PLoS Computational Biology, PLoS Genetics, PLoS Medicine, ...)


  • eLife
  • FEBS Lett.
  • Journal of Biomedical Science
  • Nature Chemical Biology
  • OMICS - A Journal of Integrative Biology
  • Science



The following journals and publishers recommend their authors to share their data using STRENDA DB:

  • Archives in Biochemistry and Biophysics
  • Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry
  • eLife
  • Molecular Catalysis
  • Nature (including Biotechnology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Systems Biology)
  • PLoS (relevant journals, e.g. One, Biology, Computational Biology, Medicine)
  • Scientific Data
  • The Journal of Biological Chemistry
  • European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry
  • European Jounral of Organic Chemistry
  • ChemCatChem
  • ChemSusChem
  • ChemBioChem
  • Chemistry Europe
