Cell Press announces new partnership with the Biophysical Society
Date:3/5/2008

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (March 5, 2008) -- Cell Press has been chosen by The Biophysical Society to publish its premier semi-monthly journal from January 2009. The Biophysical Society and Cell Press anticipate tremendous synergies between Biophysical Journal content and that of the Cell Press journals, including Cell, Neuron, Molecular Cell, Current Biology, and Structure.

For more than 50 years the Biophysical Society has promoted the development and publication of knowledge in biophysics. It has done so by publicizing, encouraging, and strengthening research in the discipline, by supporting the career development of its members and by displaying and disseminating their work at its Annual Meeting and through its Journal, by its proactive lobbying in support of funding for all basic research, and by taking a strong stance on public service, responsibility and outreach activities. The Society's members, now about 8,000 in number, work in academia, industry, and in government agencies throughout the world. In considering the importance of this new partnership for the Biophysical Society, its new President, Harel Weinstein emphasizes that: The Biophysical Societys Council approved this development unanimously because it will help us strengthen the core missions of the Society by expanding the readership and visibility of Biophysical Journal, and thereby increase the dissemination and the impact on society at large of the exciting results from research in biophysics, one of the main growth areas in science.

I am very pleased to welcome Biophysical Journal as a great complement to Cell Press content and mission, said Lynne Herndon, President and CEO of Cell Press.

By partnering with the Biophysical Society, Cell Press further strengthens its commitment to fostering scientific communication through the publication of exciting original research. Cell Press is recognized for its close relationship with the scientific community and for consistently delivering the worlds leading research across the broad spectrum of life sciences. The Biophysical Society and Journal will be linked with Cell Press to provide an important forum for the publication of rigorously reviewed scientific papers. The Editor of Biophysical Journal, Edward H. Egelman, welcomed this development by saying: The Journal continues to improve and grow in terms of the impact that it has in many areas of biological research. Our partnership with Cell Press will support this trend of growth in impact and recognition and provide us with more resources to achieve new heights.

Emilie Marcus, Editor in Chief of Cell Press states, The Biophysical Society and its journal share with Cell Press a commitment to understanding biology at a mechanistic, molecular and computational level and to publishing the highest quality research. The editorial strengths and scope of Biophysical Journal provide an excellent opportunity for a balance of fruitful new synergies in our areas of overlap and exciting expansions into new disciplines. From an editorial and scientific perspective, I am thrilled by the prospects of our partnership.
