About the Journal

Aims and Scope

Journal of Systems Biology Research (JSBR) journal is aimed at everyone working in the modelling and discovery of emergent properties in complex biological systems. Also, it seeks scientists relating the structure and dynamics of living organisms with their physiology and phenotypic traits for the understanding of the whole. In addition to the highest-quality original articles covering the entire field, each issue includes timely reviews of key primary research papers and topics in Systems Biology. Also, the Editors seek the publication of reports on emerging trends in the integration of theoretical models, computational analysis and empirical data, as a framework for understanding any scale of biological organisation, ranging from single cells to ecological systems.

The Editorial Committee actively pursues to be a leading source of essential knowledge through promoting excellence and advancement in Systems Biology, Quantitative and Predictive Physiology, and Medicine.

The journal encourages original research, expert review of Systems Biology at the forefront of a more holistic approach to understanding the dynamic and complex nature of living systems better. Also, provides insight into system-level approaches of biological research, while potentiating a transformation in the approach to the investigation of fundamental and broader biological systems. JSBR is particularly interested in receiving manuscripts that reports of original investigations, and high-quality reviews interesting to an international audience.

JSBR aims at an audience of researchers in basic Biology and Biomedicine, policy-makers in the biomedical sciences, as well as researchers and managers in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological and health care industries that seek the visualisation and understanding of the whole picture. Also, may be of interest to scientists in academia or the industry committed to the most updated and meaningful applications of Systems Biology to Drug Discovery, Biotechnology, Human Behaviour, Health, Big Data, and Food Science.

Core areas of interest of JSBR include essential advancements that result in a better understanding of dynamics of physiological processes, Thus, enabling predictions and simulations of pathways and cell behaviours from the integrative analysis and application of multiple disciplines to Biology. The journal pursues distinguished papers which showcase merit, innovation, applicability, elegant theory proposals, focus and appeal to the readership. Physicists, Immunologists, Cell Biology researchers, scientists in Genomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics, pharmaceutical chemists, computational biologists, bioinformaticians, bioengineers, are contributors of JSBR articles.

JSBR employs a rigorous peer-review and editing process to evaluate manuscripts for scientific sharpness, innovation, and significance. Editors will weight as well the Systems Biology, Integrative Biology worth and potential contribution to the understanding of the system-level behaviour of life and nature.

Call for submissions

The Journal of Systems Biology Research publishes articles of original, interdisciplinary, system dynamics, and that integrate data, insight, and analyses from molecules to organisms and larger systems. The Editor actively encourages the integration of knowledge in genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, and Physics aspects that contributes to the disciplines that meet in Systems Biology. It also pursues insights into Integrative Biology, Network Biology, dynamically-changing entities, and system-level properties of biological systems. Similarly, JSBR is interested in reviews (invited by the Editor), technology features and centred research articles on a comprehensive range of topics. Moreover, contributors may present original high-level scientific articles and new theories on integrative analysis of biological systems.
