Aims and scope

Iranian Journal of Science and Technology, Transaction A, Science (ISTT) is devoted to significant original research articles of moderate length (not more than 15 pages in the ISTT format), in a broad spectrum of Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics, and Physics. Special attention will be paid to applications of these fields in medical science and multidisciplinary research. Invited surveys of scientific developments in a subject of current interest are occasionally published in ISTT.

ISTT is divided into five sections, which are listed below with their subjects of interest.

1. Biology

In this section manuscripts on the biotechnology, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, systematics and taxonomy, ecology and conservation, developmental biology, systems biology and computational modeling are considered for publication in ISTT. In particular, authors of papers in medical science, relevant to one of these subjects, are welcome to submit their work to ISTT.

2. Chemistry

Editors of this section consider manuscripts on the analytical, inorganic, organic, nano, physical and polymer chemistry, for publication in ISTT.

3. Geology

ISTT covers both theoretical and experimental manuscripts in the subjects of tectonics and structural geology, geophysics, geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, paleontology, hydrogeology, economics and environmental geology.

4. Mathematics

ISTT publishes mathematics articles which contribute new information to a topic of algebra, analysis, differential equations, geometry, mathematical biology, optimization, probability and statistics.

5. Physics

ISTT considers physics papers in the fields of biophysics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter, elementary particles and fields, nuclear physics, statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, quantum physics, mathematical physics, astrophysics, astronomy, relativity, gravitation and cosmology.
