As the editors of Turkish Journal of Biochemistry, we aim at assuring the international recognition of "readability'' of a paper published in our journal and also supporting the research and publication culture. We try to publish the studies on biochemistry, which are original or supportive and which can add value as well as being reproducible, completed with strict adherence to ethical rules, comprehensible and efficiently written and having no commercial bias, as rapid as possible. Number of international databases indexing our journal is increasing more and more since it became an e-journal. Our goal is to become a valuable scientific publication source of our country and other countries by printing valuable articles. Based on our experience, we have presented the common mistakes, the requisites for reaching the target in a fast and efficient way, our expectations from the authors, referees and readers in a panel discussion titled "Scientific Publication Quality: Article writing, statistical analysis, evaluation process and ethical perspectives'' in 23rd National Biochemistry Congress. This article is composed to share this information with all our readers.
