AJHG provides a record of research and review relating to heredity in humans and to the application of genetic principles in medicine and public policy, as well as in related areas of molecular and cell biology. Topics explored by AJHG include behavioral genetics, biochemical genetics, clinical genetics, cytogenetics, dysmorphology, gene therapy, genetic counseling, genetic epidemiology, genomics, immunogenetics, molecular genetics, neurogenetics, and population genetics. AJHG welcomes submissions of articles and reports on timely subjects concerning all aspects of human genetics, including studies of model organisms that are of direct relevance to human genetics. Manuscripts should be written in a manner accessible to investigators representing diverse backgrounds in human genetics. Descriptions of new statistical methods of general interest to the genetics community are welcome. New methods should be compared to existing methods with the use of real data and/or simulations with parameters (e.g., haplotype frequencies, effect sizes) that are based on a real data example (e.g., marker or haplotype data from the HapMap project). All novel computer programs must be made publicly available by the time that the manuscript is published, and a URL for the website must be included in the Web Resources section of the manuscript. Letters commenting on material previously published in AJHG are also welcome. AJHG does not publish reports of either single mutations or mutational surveys of previously identified loci unless they have unusual significance and substantial insight. Descriptions of new linkage assignments will be considered only if they are of special interest. Reports of negative data will not normally be considered.

Analytical Biochemistry

  • ISSN: 0003-2697
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.2
  • Impact factor: 2.9
Methods in the Biological Sciences The journal's title Analytical Biochemistry: Methods in the Biological Sciences declares its broad scope: methods for the basic biological sciences that include biochemistry, molecular genetics, cell biology, proteomics, immunology, bioinformatics and wherever the frontiers of research take the field. The emphasis is on methods from the strictly analytical to the more preparative that would include novel approaches to protein purification as well as improvements in cell and organ culture. The actual techniques are equally inclusive ranging from aptamers to zymology. The journal has been particularly active in: Analytical techniques for biological molecules Aptamer selection and utilization Biosensors Chromatography Cloning, sequencing and mutagenesis Electrochemical methods Electrophoresis Enzyme characterization methods Immunological approaches Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (in vivo) Mass spectrometry of proteins and nucleic acids Metabolomics Nano level techniques Optical spectroscopy in all its forms The journal is reluctant to include most drug and strictly clinical studies as there are more suitable publication platforms for these types of papers. Apart from full-length original research papers, the journal also welcomes Review papers, and Notes and Tips - featuring methods that can be summarized in a shorter format article, including helpful "kitchen tricks".

Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications

  • ISSN: 0006-291X
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.2
  • Impact factor: 3.1
Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications (BBRC) is the premier international journal devoted to the very rapid dissemination of timely and significant experimental results in diverse fields of biological research. For short communication papers, we offer the fastest submission to acceptance of any journal within life sciences, with "accept" decisions rendered within three weeks of submission. We will now consider full-length research papers and review articles. The journal covers most of areas of life science, and is divided into the following sections: Biochemistry Biophysics Cell Biology Cellular Pathology and Cancer Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Genetics Immunology and Inflammation Microbiology and Virology Nanomedicine and Bionanomaterials Neuroscience Pharmacology Physiology Plant Biology Structural Biology Please see our Guide for Authors for information on article submission. If you require any further information or help, please visit our Support Center. Announcement: BBRC has traditionally only published short communications of novel results. From 2023, the journal now publishes short communications, full-length research papers, and reviews. What type of paper should I choose on submission? For short communications, we will still aim to make an accept or reject decision within two weeks of submission. If you have novel results that you can consolidate into 4,600 words, with no more than four figures, then you may continue to choose the short communication route. Short communications should be concise, no more than 4,600 words and up to four display items. They should offer novel insights and warrant a rapid peer review process. The 4,600 word count includes the title page, all sections of the manuscript (including the references), and the figure and table legends. Papers that exceed these limits will be reassigned within the submission system as a full-length research paper. If you submit a full-length research paper or a review paper, we will continue to offer a fast turnaround (with a decision after review within 30 days of submission), and we'll also make sure that any revisions that we request of you will not require significant resource expenditure on your part. Full-length research papers should present a comprehensive account of original research. These papers are not restricted by length or number of figures. Review papers should be authoritative, state-of-the-art accounts of the selected research field and be of high interest, balanced, and accurate. Beyond summaries of important scientific developments and ideas, authors are encouraged to identify and discuss how the field may be impacted or develop in the future, including insights that may be of significance to the scientific community. The number of co-authors of review articles is limited to five, and each author is expected to make a substantial contribution to the writing of the manuscript. There are no restrictions on length for review papers, and we welcome both comprehensive reviews and short reviews that offer an insight into more recent advances in a field.

  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.5
  • Impact factor: 3.4
The mission of Biophysical Journal (BJ) is to publish the highest quality work that elucidates important biological, chemical, or physical mechanisms and provides quantitative insight into fundamental problems at the molecular, cellular, and systems and whole-organism levels. Articles published in the Journal should be of general interest to quantitative biologists, regardless of their research specialty. BJ publishes original articles, letters, and perspectives on important problems in modern biophysics. The papers should be written so as to be of interest to a broad community of biophysicists. BJ welcomes experimental studies that employ quantitative physical approaches for the study of biological systems, including or spanning scales from molecule to whole organism. Experimental studies of a purely descriptive or phenomenological nature, with no theoretical or mechanistic underpinning, are not appropriate for publication in BJ. Theoretical studies should offer new insights into the understanding ofexperimental results or suggest new experimentally testable hypotheses. Articles reporting significant methodological or technological advances, which have potential to open new areas of biophysical investigation, are also suitable for publication in BJ. Papers describing improvements in accuracy or speed of existing methods or extra detail within methods described previously are not suitable for BJ. Papers are handled by an Editorial Board of more than 100 scientists who solicit reviewers with the requisite expertise. The Editorial Board is divided among the following sections; these descriptions also serve to detail the scope of science published by BJ: Section I - Nucleic Acids and Genomic Biophysics. This section highlights biophysical aspects of genome organization and their relation to cellular functions such as transcription, translation, development, and gene-regulatory mechanisms. It includes studies using experimental and computational techniques to investigate the structure, dynamics, function, and regulation of DNA, RNA, and their complexes with other molecules. It also publishes research studies on chromatin structural states, folding and function, and the dynamic organization of the nucleus. Section II -Proteins. This section covers the biophysics of protein structure, function, and interactions. The emphasis is on molecular biophysics encompassing experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches. Section III - Channels and Transporters. This section covers mechanistic studies of the structure, function, and regulation of membrane transport proteins and signaling receptors. The emphasis is on studies that use experimental and/or computational methods. Section IV - Membranes. This section covers the analysis of the structure, organization, and function of artificial and biological membranes via state-of-the art experimental and theoretical biophysics approaches. Section V - Molecular Machines, Motors, and Nanoscale Biophysics. This section covers biophysical studies of molecular motors (cytoskeletal and non-cytoskeletal), cytoskeletal assemblies, and muscle contraction and studies that use single-molecule tracking, force spectroscopy, and other nanoscale techniques. Section VI - Cell Biophysics. This section covers work that furthers our understanding of molecular function and interactions within and between cells and elucidates how these mechanisms are regulated within the cellular milieu. Section VII - Systems Biophysics. This section covers the analysis of collective properties in systems of interacting components, including biomolecular networks, organelles, tissues, organs, and whole organisms. Special emphasis is placed on studies that link multiple levels of biological organization, from gene sequence to nonlinear and network-level phenomena, such as pattern formation, metabolism, and signal transduction. Section VIII - Biophysical Perspectives. Visit the Cell Press website for more information about Biophysical Journal - http://www.cell.com/biophysj/home

Carbohydrate Research

  • ISSN: 0008-6215
  • 5 Year impact factor: 2.5
  • Impact factor: 3.1
An International Journal of Molecular Glycoscience Carbohydrate Research publishes reports of original research in the following areas of carbohydrate science: action of enzymes, analytical chemistry, biochemistry (biosynthesis, degradation, structural and functional biochemistry, conformation, molecular recognition, enzyme mechanisms, carbohydrate-processing enzymes, including glycosidases and glycosyltransferases), chemical synthesis, isolation of natural products, physicochemical studies, reactions and their mechanisms, the study of structures and stereochemistry, and technological aspects. Papers on polysaccharides should have a "molecular" component; that is a paper on new or modified polysaccharides should include structural information and characterization in addition to the usual studies of rheological properties and the like. A paper on a new, naturally occurring polysaccharide should include structural information, defining monosaccharide components and linkage sequence. Papers devoted wholly or partly to X-ray crystallographic studies, or to computational aspects (molecular mechanics or molecular orbital calculations, simulations via molecular dynamics), will be considered if they meet certain criteria. For computational papers the requirements are that the methods used be specified in sufficient detail to permit replication of the results, and that the conclusions be shown to have relevance to experimental observations - the authors' own data or data from the literature. Specific directions for the presentation of X-ray data are given below under Results and "discussion".

International Journal of Clinical Chemistry and Diagnostic Laboratory MedicineThe Official Journal of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) Clinica Chimica Acta is a high-quality journal which publishes original Research Communications in the field of clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine, defined as the diagnostic application of chemistry, biochemistry, immunochemistry, biochemical aspects of hematology, toxicology, and molecular biology to the study of human disease in body fluids and cells. The objective of the journal is to publish novel information leading to a better understanding of biological mechanisms of human diseases, their prevention, diagnosis, and patient management. Reports of an applied clinical character are also welcome. Papers concerned with normal metabolic processes or with constituents of normal cells or body fluids, such as reports of experimental or clinical studies in animals, are only considered when they are clearly and directly relevant to human disease. Evaluation of commercial products have a low priority for publication, unless they are novel or represent a technological breakthrough. Studies dealing with effects of drugs and natural products and studies dealing with the redox status in various diseases are not within the journal's scope. Development and evaluation of novel analytical methodologies where applicable to diagnostic clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine, including point-of-care testing, and topics on laboratory management and informatics will also be considered. Studies focused on emerging diagnostic technologies and (big) data analysis procedures including digitalization, mobile Health, and artificial Intelligence applied to Laboratory Medicine are also of interest.
