Now publishing Brief Definitive Reports 
The journal welcomes accounts of potentially exciting advances that are not written up as conventional articles but as brief reports describing observations that can be explored in further research. Brief Definitive Reports should not be structured like original papers but should contain concise accounts of background studies, methods used, results and discussion. A summary should be included, references should be kept to a minimum and there will normally be no more than one table and one figure (supplementary material may be published online). The maximum length accepted is four pages of typescript. They will be given some priority in publication as the schedule permits.
