Biophysical Perspectives


We are happy to welcome nine new members to our Editorial Board! See the 2018 BJ Editorial Board here: http://www.cell.com/biophysj/editorial-board

Beginning January 2018, authors are invited to submit a Figure 360 along with their accepted Biophysical Journal manuscript. A Figure 360 is an enhancement of one figure in your paper—essentially, a brief video that highlights the figure’s take-home message through a combination of animation and textual or spoken narration. For more information on creating a Figure 360, consult the Information for Authors page: http://www.cell.com/biophysj/authors 

BJ has collaborated with Overleaf to provide a cloud-based authoring tool. The template allows authors to easily prepare and edit their manuscripts in LaTex. See the journal instructions for authors at http://www.cell.com/biophysj/authors.

Submit to BJ and Experience the New, Improved Submission Site! The Biophysical Journal has made significant changes to its manuscript submission site. The more modern, streamlined look, user-friendly navigation, and clearer instructions are designed to improve the author experience when submitting to the journal. In addition, authors can now upload a paper to bioRxiv directly from BJ during the submission process. Test it out by submitting your work to BJ!

Thank you to everyone who reviewed for Biophysical Journal in 2017.

Authors can now submit manuscripts directly to BJ from bioRxiv.

Corresponding authors can add their Twitter handle as a footnote to their BJ article. Simply include it on the first page of your manuscript with your final files.
