The Biophysical Journal is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Cell Press on behalf of the Biophysical Society. The journal was established in 1960 to provide a forum for research by Society members and nonmembers, while maintaining rigorous review and publication standards. The Journal publishes articles of biophysical significance to a broad community of quantitative biologists within various sub-specialties.
Biophysical Journal is currently published biweekly, for a total of 24 issues per year, with special issues devoted to specific topics. In addition, a supplemental "abstracts issue" is published, containing abstracts of presentations at the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting. The editor-in-chief is Jane Dyson, The Scripps Research Institute. Its Editor-in-Chief, Associate Editors, and Editorial Board Members are active scientists and Society members from across the globe. Through original articles, letters, and perspectives on problems in modern biophysics, Biophysical Journal provides a forum for research that elucidates important biological, chemical, or physical mechanisms and provides quantitative insight into fundamental problems at the molecular, cellular, and systems and whole-organism levels. Research articles focus on experimental studies that employ quantitative physical approaches for the study of biological systems.
The scope of Biophysical Journal aims at reaching a broad community of biophysicists. The focus of the journal lies in quantitative physical approaches for the study of biological systems, from molecules to whole organisms. Both theoretical and experimental studies are published.
The journal is divided into eight sections:
