HistoryEdit

The Journal of Biosciences was established in 1934 as the Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences (Section B). In 1978, the Proceedings were split into three sections: Proceedings-Animal Sciences, Proceedings-Plant Sciences, and Proceedings-Experimental Biology. The latter section was renamed Journal of Biosciences in 1979, and in 1991 it was merged again with the other two sections.[2]
