Biophysical Reviews makes debut in 2009

The International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) and Springer will launch the journal Biophysical Reviews in spring 2009. Biophysical Reviews is the new official journal of the IUPAB, the leading international biophysics organization consisting of 52 national societies with approximately 15,000 members. The entire IUPAB Council will form the editorial board of the new journal in order to demonstrate the close affiliation between the Springer journal and the IUPAB.

Biophysical Reviews will publish short and critical reviews from key scientists active in the field. The quarterly journal will cover the entire field of biophysics, generally defined as the science of describing biological phenomena and resolving their underlying principles using the concepts and techniques of physics. This includes, but is not limited to, such areas as bioinformatics, biophysical methods and instrumentation, medical biophysics, biosystems and cell biophysics. The editor-in-chief, Professor Jean Garnier of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA) - Unit Mathmatique Informatique et Gnome (France) will work closely with the expert international editorial board.

Dr. Sabine Schwarz, Senior Editor for Life Sciences at Springer, said, "We are excited about the IUPAB's decision to cooperate with Springer. The new journal will provide top-level reviews in biophysics, which will of course all be peer-reviewed. This aspect, combined with the high-caliber editorial board and the IUPAB's previous publishing experience, provides the perfect preconditions for a successful journal."

Professor Kuniaki Nagayama, President of the International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics, said, "The IUPAB requires a useful and broadly informative official journal, and our old journal did not serve our purposes well. Now, in cooperation with Springer, we are starting the new official journal, Biophysical Reviews. I am pleased to have the opportunity to be part of the development of this new journal, together with the IUPAB, biophysicists affiliated with the IUPAB and all others interested in biophysics."

Springer will publish Biophysical Reviews in both print and electronic formats. It will be available via, Springer's online information platform, and will include fast, electronic publication in Online First, as well as Cross Reference Linking and Table of Content Alerts. All potential authors have the option, via the Springer Open Choice program, of publishing their articles using the open access publishing model.
