BioMetals is an international, multidisciplinary journal singularly devoted to the rapid publication of the fundamental advances of both basic and applied research in this field. BioMetals offers a forum for innovative research and clinical results on the structure and function of:

  • metal ions
  • metal chelates,
  • siderophores,
  • metal-containing proteins
  • biominerals in all biosystems.

BioMetals rapidly publishes original articles and reviews.

BioMetals is a journal for metals researchers who practice in medicine, biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, microbiology, cell biology, chemistry, and plant physiology who are based academic, industrial and government laboratories.
