BBA Advances

  • ISSN: 2667-1603
One of the 10 topical journals of BBABBA Advances is an open access multidisciplinary journal that is complementary to the existing nine BBA journals. It publishes high-quality research showing novel results in all aspects of biochemistry, biophysics, and related areas, such as molecular and cell biology, and aims to provide a vibrant forum for researchers to explore topics that are important to them and their community.We have particular interest in papers with mechanistic insights or significant novelty.Areas of focus includeBiophysical and structural biology of proteins, peptides, and nucleic acidsSingle-molecule studiesPhase transitions in biologyBiophysics of cellular homeostasisProtein misfolding and functional self-assemblyBiomolecules in green and sustainable processesNovel enzymology, including dynamics and evolutionHost-pathogen interactionsMembrane trafficking and secretory pathwaysMechanical and electrical biophysicsMembrane biophysicsCytoskeletal assembliesNovel biomaterialsProtein designThe journal publishes full research articles, reviews, mini-reviews, and research letters. An addition to this list is "Five Burning Questions," an initiative to promote a scientific topic in a succinct and focused format. We offer researchers the opportunity to identify what they find to be the five most important questions that need to be addressed in an area important to them. We will then publish these papers in a special subsection of the journal. See the Guide for Authors for details on the format.The journal operates the same high standard and rigor of peer review as the other BBA journals. Authors can submit papers for consideration and peer review directly to the journal through the submission site. Uniquely, the journal also offers a parallel route to publication for authors. Once an author has had their paper peer-reviewed and accepted in one of the other BBA journals, they have the option of choosing to publish their paper in either the journal they submitted to or transferring their accepted paper to BBA Advances for publication without further review.For any questions, contact us at [email protected].

BBA Clinical

  • ISSN: 2214-6474
BBA Clinical is an open access biomedical journal dedicated to human research. It brings together clinical and biochemical human studies, providing a new venue for researchers using observational studies and clinical trials to understand the molecular and biochemical processes involved in human disease.All articles in BBA Clinical should describe, in part or entirely, studies using human patient samples or human cohorts. Manuscripts should emphasize the implications that biochemical mechanisms have for the observed clinical findings, and focus on describing how the data contribute to understanding and treatment of the clinical condition. Highly descriptive and method-development submissions may be declined without review.Clinical areas of particular interest include aging, cancer, cardiovascular-, metabolic-, neurological-, and immunological-based diseases; the interactions that may occur among these diseases and conditions; and studies that examine early or pre-symptomatic states. Cross-sectional and prospective studies from well-established cohorts, and studies involving imaging methodologies, are particularly encouraged.Invited reviews and editorials, focused on cutting-edge aspects of clinical research, will appear on a regular basis to complement regular research articles. Unsolicited review articles will be considered only in exceptional cases, and should be preceded by a letter of enquiry from the author, outlining the proposed review and compelling reasons why the subject is timely and important.BBA Clinical is the clinical complement to BBA Molecular Basis of Disease, which focuses on the molecular and biochemical basis of such conditions in pre-clinical studies, such as cell culture and animal models.

Behavioural Brain Research

  • ISSN: 0166-4328
  • 5 Year impact factor: 2.8
  • Impact factor: 2.6
Behavioural Brain Research is an international, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the publication of articles in the field of behavioural neuroscience, broadly defined. Contributions from the entire range of disciplines that comprise the neurosciences, behavioural sciences or cognitive sciences are appropriate, as long as the goal is to delineate the neural mechanisms underlying behaviour. Thus, studies may range from neurophysiological, neuroanatomical, neurochemical or neuropharmacological analysis of brain-behaviour relations, including the use of molecular genetic or behavioural genetic approaches, to studies that involve the use of brain imaging techniques, to neuroethological studies. The journal considers research in a wide variety of species including invertebrates, vertebrates, and humans. Reports of original research, of major methodological advances, or of novel conceptual approaches are all encouraged. Behavioural Brain Research also considers critical reviews and meta-analyses.Benefits to authors We provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.

Behavioural Processes

  • ISSN: 0376-6357
  • 5 Year impact factor: 1.5
  • Impact factor: 1.3
Behavioural Processes is dedicated to the publication of high-quality original research on animal behaviour from any theoretical perspective. It welcomes contributions that consider animal behaviour from behavioural analytic, cognitive, ethological, ecological and evolutionary points of view. This list is not intended to be exhaustive, and papers that integrate theory and methodology across disciplines are particularly welcome.The quality of research and focus on behavioural processes are the sole criteria for acceptance. Behavioural Processes considers both papers investigating basic behavioural phenomena and behavioural studies of more applied significance. Papers reporting solely on human behaviour may be considered for publication if they relate closely to non-human research within the journal's remit. Authors of papers reporting research on human subjects are invited to contact the editors for advice prior to submission, as they are for papers of all kinds.Behavioural Processes publishes three categories of paper. First, regular Research Papers presenting the results of original experiments or outlining novel theoretical positions. Second, Reviews which summarize the state of knowledge in an area of animal behavioural research. Third, Short Reports which are short communications reporting the outcome of a single experiment in no more than 2000 words and a total of two tables or figures.

Bioactive Carbohydrates and Dietary Fibre

  • ISSN: 2212-6198
Bioactive Carbohydrates and Dietary Fibre is intended to be an international journal focused on dietary fibre, and bioactive carbohydrates (including bioactive polysaccharides, oligosaccharides and glycoproteins. It will include original studies and comprehensive reviews on the primary structure, molecular characteristics including conformation, size and shape, and bioactivities demonstrated by studies using in vitro, cell culture, animal and human clinical trials for understanding the action mechanisms and efficacy of bioactive carbohydrates from plants, fungi, animals and produced by biotechnology.Specific bioactivities such as reducing serum cholesterol, modulating blood glucose and insulin levels, fermentability in the gastrointestinal track, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, immune regulatory and anti-oxidant activities demonstrated by these bioactive carbohydrates are the main focus of this journal. It also covers the areas of interaction of dietary fibres, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides and glycoproteins with food matrices which may enhance or alter their efficacy, shelf-life stability of the bioactivities.Papers will cover such issues as: • Structural characterization of bioactive polysaccharides, oligosaccharides and glycoproteins • Conformation and molecular characteristics of bioactive polysaccharides, oligosaccharides and glycoproteins • Bioactivities of polysaccharides including: anti-cancer, immune modulation, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant etc • New anti-cancer polysaccharides from herbs • Recent advances in bioactive polysaccharides, oligosaccharides and glycoproteins • Analysis and physicochemical characterization of soluble and insoluble dietary fibre • Effects of dietary fibre on post-prandial blood glucose and/or insulin levels • Effect of dietary fibre on blood total and/or LDL cholesterol levels; • Effects of dietary fibre on gut function and ecology of microflora • Role of a diet rich in soluble fibre in reducing body weight • Development of dietary fibre industry • Animal and clinical trial studies • Updates on regulatory changes and legal constraints on nutritional dietary fibre and other food hydrocolloidsThe subject borders on medicine but is not a medical subject. The common factor for published papers is “bioactivity” and it's influence on health. Origin, husbanding, extraction, characterization, purification, cell culture, animal and clinical trials leading towards a medical or food supplemental applications will be considered. To be considered for this journal the research needs to cross-over from chemistry/biochemistry into biological investigation, with opportunities too for those who work on immune systems to contribute.Types of contribution: • Original research papers (full papers and short communications) • Invited reviews • Opinion pieces • Perspective commentaries.
