Quarterly Reviews of Biophysics (QRB) covers the whole field of biophysics, from ion channels to DNA topology and from X-ray diffraction to NMR. The journal has gained a worldwide reputation, demonstrated by its high ranking in the ISI Science Citation Index, as a forum for general and specialised communication between biophysicists working in different areas. The journal features authoritative Reviews, the majority of which are invited from authors who have made significant contributions to the field, and who give critical, readable and sometimes controversial accounts of recent progress and problems in their speciality. The newly founded Discovery section publishes key Open Access original research and what may be described as true discoveries, or novel methods to reach mechanistic understanding of biological systems. While biophysics can be reasonably widely interpreted, to include areas like structural biology, our papers should be firmly anchored with a molecular view of the science.
