International Journal of Biophysics

International Journal of Biophysics is a peer-reviewed, open access international journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of biophysics. The primary goal of this journal is to advance the understanding of biological structure and function by application of the principles of physical science, and by presenting the work in a biophysical context.
