Aims and Scope

The official Journal of the European Peptide Society EPS

The Journal of Peptide Science is a cooperative venture of John Wiley & Sons, Ltd and the European Peptide Society, undertaken for the advancement of international peptide science by the publication of original research results and reviews. The Journal of Peptide Science publishes three types of articles: Research Articles, Rapid Communications and Reviews.

The scope of the Journal embraces the whole range of peptide chemistry and biology: the isolation, characterisation, synthesis properties (chemical, physical, conformational, pharmacological, endocrine and immunological) and applications of natural peptides; studies of their analogues, including peptidomimetics; peptide antibiotics and other peptide-derived complex natural products; peptide and peptide-related drug design and development; peptide materials and nanomaterials science; combinatorial peptide research; the chemical synthesis of proteins; and methodological advances in all these areas. The spectrum of interests is well illustrated by the published proceedings of the regular international Symposia of the European, American, Japanese, Australian, Chinese and Indian Peptide Societies.

The Journal of Peptide Science publishes the bi-annual EPS Newsletter and sponsors the EPS Website
