Overview


Biological Reviews covers the entire range of the biological sciences, presenting several review articles per issue. Although scholarly and with extensive bibliographies, the articles are aimed at non-specialist biologists as well as researchers in the field. Authors are specifically instructed to be aware of this fact in their writing, and the resulting reviews serve as extensive introductions to particular fields, defining the state of the art, and drawing attention to gaps in knowledge. Articles are up to 20,000 words long and each contains an abstract, a thorough introduction and statement of conclusions.

What Biological Reviews has to offer:

  • Fast publication times
  • Flexible policy on nature of articles, with scope for extensive tables and illustrations
  • International exposure with global circulation

 * All articles in Biological Reviews are unsolicited reviews. Find out more details on how to submit your review paper here *


Aims and Scope


The journal aims to cover the whole field of biology, in particular the growth areas of modern biology. Articles range from comprehensive reviews of a broad research field to shorter articles on more specialised topics, and great flexibility in content and presentation is allowed. Articles are pitched at a level for experts in the particular field of research, but authors are asked to write in a way that is intelligible to the non-expert so that scientists unfamiliar with the topic can learn something from it. Articles can be extensively illustrated. All articles are subject to refereeing and articles presenting a new theory or point of view are preferred. Reviews of books are not published.
