BMC Structural Biology

Jan. 15, 2008

Dear Dr Hartley

I am writing to you with regard to the above manuscript, which has been submitted to BMC Structural Biology. Our editorial board has now assessed your manuscript and in the light of their comments, I am afraid that we are unable to consider your manuscript for peer review and are closing your file. I am sorry to say that your manuscript does not present sufficient advance in the field to merit publication in BMC Structural Biology. Our Editorial Board was especially concerned over the reference list of your manuscript as it only contains nine references and only two of them are from the last four years.

Please note that this decision applies across the BMC-series of journals.

Thank you for your interest in BMC Structural Biology.


Dr Danielle Talbot
