About the Journal
Focus and Scope
Biosis: Biological Systems (eISSN:2707-9783, pISSN:2708-0072) is an international fully peer-reviewed and Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) compliant open access Journal that is published online with a quarterly frequency. The goal of this journal is to promote interdisciplinary approaches in Biology and Medicine, at the interface between organismal and the processes of organic evolution in the broadest sense.
We welcome contributions (usually up to a maximum of 12,000 words) that illustrate the unifying concepts of systems biology with evidence, either observational or theoretical, from any relevant field of the biological sciences. Biological Systems emphasises the study of biological situations using a variety of tools, including mathematical and general systems methods. This Journal solicits original research papers and review articles across the range of biological systems, living and fossils.
We are interested in:
-Complex systems studies; isomorphies; nonlinear dynamics; entropy; mathematical tools and systems theories with applications in Biology and Medicine.
-Interdisciplinary approaches in Biology and Medicine; transfer of methods from one discipline to another; integration of biological levels, from atomic to molecular, macromolecular, cellular, and organic levels; animal biology; plant biology.
-Environmental studies; relationships between individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems; bioeconomics, management of renewable resources; hierarchy theory; integration of spatial and time scales.
-Evolutionary biology and palaeontology; fossils and taxonomy; phylogenetics and the description of new species; co-evolution; genetics and evolution; branching processes and phyllotaxis.
-Medical systems; physiology; cardiac modelling; computer models in Medicine; cancer research; epidemiology.
-Numerical simulations and computations; numerical study and analysis of biological data.
-Epistemology and the history of science.
Biosis: Biological Systems will also publish book reviews, where appropriate.
Only original papers will be considered for peer-review and, hopefully, publication. Your submission of a manuscript indicates a tacit understanding that the paper is not actively under consideration for publication with other journals.
This journal does not apply APC for article submission and processing.
