Quarterly Reviews of Biophysics launches ‘Discovery’ section and welcomes original research under a gold Open Access extension

Cambridge University Press announces the launch of the ‘Discovery’ section within Quarterly Reviews of Biophysics (QRB), which now welcomes high-quality, innovative original research papers to complement its authoritative ‘Reviews’ section.

QRB has provided a valuable forum for scholarly reviews from leading scientists across all areas of biophysics, and received an impact factor of 7.81 in the 2014 Journal Citation Reports. Led by an Editorial Board of eminent researchers, this expansion into publishing original research will reinforce QRB as the key reference for researchers in biophysics.

QRB Discovery will be overseen by current QRB Editor-in-Chief, Professor Bengt Nordén (Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden), who will be working alongside a prestigious editorial board. Professor Nordén said, “I am delighted to be involved in this new initiative to enhance our existing influential review articles with innovative original research across the full spectrum of biophysics.”

The first papers to be published in the Discovery section are invited speakers from the Nobel Workshop and Molecular Frontiers Symposium, both recently held in Gothenburg, Sweden. Authors include Roger Kornberg, Arieh Warshel, Richard Lerner, Robert Langer, Frances H. Arnold, Richard N. Zare and A. David Buckingham.

Authors who wish to publish their papers in QRB Discovery will be able to do so under a gold Open Access model and payment of an article processing charge (APC). Reviews will continue to be accessed via a subscription to QRB, with OA as an option for Review authors to choose should they wish to pay the APC.
