  • Presents research related to the main physical mechanisms of processes at different organization levels in biosystems
  • Multidisciplinary coverage includes structure and dynamics of molecules, cells and tissues; the influence of environment; energy transformation and transfer; thermodynamics; biological motility; population dynamics and cell differentiation modeling; and more
  • Also publishes letters, reviews and mini-reviews on problems of general interest

The journal Biophysics addresses a wide range of problems related to the main physical mechanisms of processes taking place at different organization levels in biosystems. The multidisciplinary coverage includes structure and dynamics of molecules, cells and tissues; the influence of environment; energy transformation and transfer; thermodynamics; biological motility; population dynamics and cell differentiation modeling; biomechanics and tissue rheology; non-linear phenomena, mathematical cybernetics modeling of complex systems; computational biology.

Biophysics presents a detailed view of relevant basic research in former Soviet and Eastern European countries. The Letters to the Editor section is dedicated to rapid publications of special interest. Reviews and mini-reviews are devoted to problems of general interest.

PEER REVIEW

Biophysics is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 90 reviewers, both internal and external (76%), from 8 countries. The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 45 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 15 days.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.

    Biophysics covers a wide scope of problems related to the main physical mechanisms of processes taking place on different organization levels in biosystems. It includes structure and dynamics of molecules, cells and tissues; the influence of environment; energy transformation and transfer; thermodynamics; biological motility; population dynamics and cell differentiation modeling; biomechanics and tissue rheology; non-linear phenomena, mathematical cybernetics modeling of complex systems; computational biology.

    Biophysics exercises a multidisciplinary approach and presents the complete pattern of relevant basic research in former Soviet and Eastern European countries. The Letters to the Editor section is dedicated to rapid publications of special interest. Reviews and mini-reviews are devoted to problems of general interest. The size of manuscripts is not limited.
