Aims and Scope

molecular – cellular – biomedical – physiology – translational research – systems - hypotheses encouraged

A peer-reviewed, review-and-discussion journal which aims to publish novel insights, forward-looking reviews and commentaries in contemporary biology with a molecular, genetic, cellular, or physiological dimension, and serve as a discussion forum for new ideas in these areas. An additional goal is to encourage transdisciplinarity and integrative biology in the context of organismal studies, systems approaches, through to ecosystems, where appropriate. BioEssays does not consider original research, but is open to analyses based on formally published data.
