Aims & Scope

Aims & Scope
The FEBS Journal is an international Journal devoted to the rapid publication of full-length papers covering a wide range of topics in any area of the molecular life sciences. The criteria for acceptance are originality and high quality research, which will provide novel perspectives in a specific area of research, and will be of interest to our broad readership.

The Journal does not accept papers that describe the expression of specific genes and proteins or test the effect of a drug or reagent, without presenting any biological significance. Papers describing bioinformatics, modelling or structural studies of specific systems or molecules should include experimental data.

The FEBS Journal publishes Reviews and Minireviews on a wide range of topics, which may be solicited or submitted. In addition, the Journal publishes Special Issues that cover in detail a chosen research topic in a specific scientific field.

The scope of the journal is broad and inclusive. We are particularly interested in papers in which state-of-the-art approaches are applied to bring novel insight into molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie the functions of molecules, cells and organisms. The Journal welcomes manuscripts of an interdisciplinary and integrative nature, including systems approaches.

The areas of interest of The FEBS Journal include, but are not limited to:
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
Developmental Biology
Evolutionary Biology
Enzymology and Chemical Biology
Molecular and Cell Biology
Molecular Microbiology
Molecular Mechanisms in Health and Disease
Molecular Neurobiology
Pathogens and Infection
Signal Transduction
Stem cell Biology
Structural Biology
Systems Biology and Synthetic Biology
