Aim 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.
